Pharrell Williams Explains How Daft Punk Collaboration Happened

(Radio.com) Daft Punk released the latest in a series of videos featuring artists who they collaborated with for their fourth studio album, Random Access Memories, set for release on May 21.

In this latest clip, Pharrell Williams (who only refers to the dance duo as "the robots") discusses how the collaboration came together after the two entities ran into each other at a party hosted by Madonna, eventually connecting in Paris to work on music.

It was during that session that Williams says Daft Punk gave him a mysterious pill that not only gave him a burst of energy in the recording session, but also erased any memory of it from his brain.

"Because I was just so tired and extremely jet lagged, they gave me this table that you put in water, you know, more on the holistic side, it doesn't have the crash or whatever," Williams said. He goes on to say that the pill gave him a "burst of energy," as well as a little something extra.

"By the time I got back on the plane to America, I had forgotten everything," the Neptunes producer and N*E*R*D frontman continued. "Still to this day, I can't figure out was it really the jet lag or did the robots sort of hit me with the Men in Black, like, 'you will remember nothing of this.'" More including the video.
