Daft Punk Sign To Columbia, Prep LP For May
This isn’t quite as big a deal as a new My Bloody Valentine album, but it’s still pretty fucking big. Unless we’re counting the Tron: Legacy soundtrack, Daft Punk haven’t released a proper studio album since 2005’s Human After All. For the past few years, they’ve been putting in mysterious studio work, reportedly collaborating with people like Panda Bear, Italo-disco titan Giorgio Moroder, Chic bandleader Nile Rodgers, “Rainbow Connection” songwriter Paul Williams, and Feist buddy Chilly Gonzales. And now The Hollywood Reporter is saying that the duo has signed with Columbia, and that their new album is coming out this year. Meanwhile, The Guardian reports that said album will be out in May.
