I love Daft Punk’s new album. I think that Random Access Memories is one of the best albums of 2013. The French duo are going to joined by Pharrell Williams, Nile Rodgers, and Stevie Wonder for their Grammy performance. They’ll perform a medley of songs, including Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” and “Lose Yourself to Dance”, Wonder’s “I Wish”, and Chic’s “Le Freak”.

But they have a surprise for all of us. Tonight Daft Punk is going to wear Star Wars helmets. As you know, in 2010 there was another connection between Daft Punk and Star Wars. They were in the Tatooine cantina scene for an Adidas commercial also featuring  Snoop Dog and David Beckham.

The French group are very excited about Episode VII,  “We’ve always been big fans of his work. I happened to have met J.J. Abrams a few years back, and he’s a really cool guy. He seems to be the perfect candidate to keep the Force alive.”

Tonight at the Grammy Awards,  it could be a big opportunity to advertise the new film.
