After almost having a heart-attack at Coachella (twice), Daft Punk never showed. But they did hit us with a little surprise: the infamous duo’s teased almost all of Coachella by feauturing a teaser of their song before TNGHT and The Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs performance. As we ran over to TNGHT, we just caught the tail end of the video, but we knew something good would be coming in the near future. That it did, somehow the Frenchy’s song has been leaked (they don’t allow these types of things to happen, so this might not even be real)
Take a listen, featuring Nile Rogers on the Guitar, and Pharell on the vocals; this track can be loved by old and young. If you have yet to tune into the documentaries the duo has released on their website, make sure to give them a watch so you can fully appreciate this song. What do you think?
So Daft Punk is finally back, and this is apparently there first of multiple episodes to come featuring legendary composers/songwriters and speaking on their behalf. Giorgio Moroder essentially breaks it down for the viewers at the end of the video: The reason Daft Punk has been gone for so long is due to the fact that Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo are so detail oriented that it takes them weeks just to find the sound they need some times. They even record with 3 different microphones (from the 60s, 70s, and today) even though none of us could tell the difference, apparently they can.
So what have they really been doing? IT HAS HAPPENED. They have finally bridged the gap, between real music and music made on computers. It’s still electronic, but it now has the human touch, because they used real instruments.
Bravo, Daft Punk, Bravo.
Fans hungry for any piece of intel regarding the upcoming fifth record by Daft Punk may now have a bit more to chew on.
This morning, the Daft Punk fan site The Daft Clubposted a screenshot taken from PPL, a British company that licenses recorded music and relegates royalties. The post confirms that Sony Music (whose subsidiary company Columbia Records will be handling the French duo’s upcoming album) has registered 13 Daft Punk songs with the organization.
Though the tracks remain untitled, they range in length from 3:48 to 9:04.
Check out the full list of tracks below.
If you aren’t waiting with wild anticipation for the new Daft Punk album scheduled to drop this May, then you probably suck. This album will be the anthem of 2013, perfect to begin your party summer. French duo Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo havn’t released an album in over eight years, but from what is rumored, the creativity never ceased. There have been rumors about contributors but, as with everything about the duo, it is shrouded in secrecy. There has been no official announcement, only the above image showing at www.daftpunk.com. One can only be sure that they plan to drop a masterpiece and they have just released this “commercial” to leave you wanting more. Enjoy, Daft Punk is planning an epic return.
