Stevie Wonder and Steely Dan’s Michael McDonald are among a host of guest stars to feature on the new record…
Daft Punk bassist Nathan East has announced plans for his first solo album.
East has recruited a host of guest stars including Stevie Wonder, American singer Sara Bareilles and Steely Dan’s Michael McDonald to work on the record. He has previously worked with all the artists on their own projects along with Eric Clapton and Beyonce.
He told Billboard: “It’s a celebration of my musical friends and my musical life over 30 years’ worth of experiences and influences. The one thing I’ve learned is that I love a collaborative effort, the spirit of making music with a lot of great musicians in the room.”

His recording partners have included Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Michael Jackson, George Harrison, Aretha Franklin, B.B. King, Whitney Houston, Wayne Shorter, Stevie Wonder, Barbra Streisand, Joe Satriani, Kenny Loggins and literally hundreds more. This summer, he was featured on several songs on Daft Punk’s album “Random Access memories,’ including “Get Lucky,” one of the biggest records of the year and a likely contender for multiple Grammy nominations later this week.

He has played and/or performed with everyone from Toto, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson to Eric Clapton, Beyoncé, Andrea Bocelli and Daft Punk. Now popular session bassist Nathan East is recording his first solo album. The yet-untitled set — the first in a planned two-volume project — is due March 25, 2014 from Yamaha Entertainment Group.
“It’s a celebration of my musical friends and my musical life over 30 years’ worth of experiences and influences,” says East during a recording break at Los Angeles’ Ocean Way Studios. “The one thing I’ve learned is that I love a collaborative effort, the spirit of making music with a lot of great musicians in the room.”
Produced by East and Yamaha Entertainment founder Chris Gero, the ADA-distributed album will be a mix of originals and reimagined covers traversing East’s work in R&B, pop, rock and jazz. The covers include a tribute to Wonder on “Sir Duke,” Pat Metheny’s “Letter From Home” and “101 Eastbound” by Fourplay, in which East is a founding member.
