Daft Punk bassist Nathan East has recruited pals Stevie Wonder, Sara Bareilles and Michael Mcdonald to work on his first solo album.

The acclaimed musician has worked with popular artists such as Michael Jackson, Beyonce and Andrea Bocelli during his 30 years in the music industry, and now he's heading into the studio for an album of his own.

East will be releasing a yet-to-be-titled record next year (14), which will contain both original songs and covers.

He has already tapped Wonder, MCDonald and Bareilles for the record, but is still hoping to enlist Eric Clapton and Anita Baker, who he's also worked with in the past.

East is also in talks for creating an accompanying documentary about the process of making the album.
