Lovers of pretend-robot French dudes and giants beats, rejoice: Daft Punk are back. Details are currently sketchy, but the duo has reportedly signed a deal with Columbia Records (they previously released music via EMI), and have a new album is in the works, which we’ll likely lay ears on it before 2013 is over.
And if we’re lucky, we’ll get a proper tour from what is, undoubtedly, the best live act in electronic music.
Daft Punk—Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo to their mothers—have been gone for a minute. They haven’t released a proper album since 2005′s critically-beloved Human After All (which featured two big singles in “Robot Rock” and “Technologic”).
FUCK YEAH A NEW DAFT PUNK ALBUM!!!!!!
