Kanye West is reportedly ready to drop new music this week with former collaborating act, Daft Punk. It is not known exactly how much music we should be expecting, one maybe two songs. It is also unclear as to where this music will live, both Kanye West and the Daft Punk duo are both prepping projects currently.
In addition Fools Gold general and Kanye’s former DJ, A-Trak, broke the silence in confirming the music does exist.
So I guess I no longer have to keep the secret of the robots producing Ye? Those songs are insane.

Rolling Stone further cemented the idea of the trio coming together for the first time since 2007’s “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.” They quote, At their Paris studio, they laid down a combination of live and programmed drums while Kanye worked out rough vocals on the fly. “It was very raw: he was rapping – kind of screaming primally, actually,” Thomas says. “Kanye doesn’t give a fuck,” Guy-Manuel adds. “He’s a good friend.” Director (and longtime Daft Punk compatriot) Michel Gondry says that Kanye recently played him “two songs” that sprang from the session. “One of them, I told him it sounded solid and powerful – I envisioned a cube when I heard it,” Gondry says. “He told me, Chris Cunningham’s already directing the video!”.
