After Pharrell has appeared on Daft Punk's Grammy-winning album Random Access Memories, it looks like the robots are returning the favor. 

Pharrell revealed the track list to his upcoming album G I R L, and among the list of songs is a Daft Punk collaboration called "Gust of Wind."

The robots are known for their outstanding production skills, but on "Gust of Wind," they actually contribute vocals.

After listening to Pharrell's new album, "NME" gave some insight into what fans can expect:

"Pharrell's favourite track - the lyric came to him in a dream - is another widescreen epic, all Bond-ish string surges and French Touch beats. It's about how he can feel his lover's emotions when he opens the window and puts his hands into the breeze. The euphoria of the hook is contrasted with a certain sense of awe-struck unease in the verses. Is there a part of that atmosphere, and perhaps even a smidgen of the melody, that he's lifted from Helen Reddy's spookily mysterious 40-year-old hit 'Angie Baby'? With a knowledge of pop as deep and broad as Williams's - and, given that it's a song about a "special lady" with mystical powers who uses loud music to defend herself against an evil male attacker - it's certainly possible. This track's backing vocalists? It's only Daft Punk."

Given the success of Random Access Memories and its Pharrell collabs "Get Lucky" and "Lose Yourself to Dance," "Gust of Wind" sounds like it will be another hit for the robots and Pharrell. 

G I R L is set to be released on March 3rd.
