Daft Punk working on new album
Everyone’s favorite robotic French dance duo is finally back in the recording studio. That’s right, Daft Punk, who has not released an album since 2005’s Human After All, is currently holed up in a Parisian studio according to longtime manager Busy P.
However, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo don’t seem to feel pressured to produce new music quickly. “They are slow, you know,” Busy P told In The Mix. “They are taking their time, and they have a right.”
Although you probably shouldn’t start holding your breath now for a new Daft Punk record any time soon, there are plenty of other ways to get your fix until the new album drops.
Since 2005, the duo has toured in support of Human After All, making appearances at last year’s Lollapalooza and Oxegen Festivals. The pair also released a silent movie, Electroma, which premiered at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival. Last year, rapper Kanye West teamed up with Daft Punk, using “Harder Better Faster Stronger” in his track, “Stronger,” a major hit of 2007.
