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.
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.
Here is a 10 minute version of the 15 second commercial played during SNL! Thank you loyal Daft Punks 🙂
