random access memories : Daft Punk has a new album coming sometime in april. Daft Punk have once again teased audiences by broadcasting a mysterious commercial on American TV.
While the clip isn’t all that forthcoming about much of anything—beyond the fact that the band still exists, wears helmets, and makes funky dance music—it’s birthed a world of online speculation and wackiness.
One YouTube user has even made a 10-minute clip of the 15-second sample, which plays it over and over and over. Listen below, and get stoked for an album we know almost nothing about right now.
Daft Punk’s new record is a long time in the making: apart from their score for the 2010 film Tron, Thomas and Guy-Manuel haven’t released an album since Human After All.
Paul Williams has stated that he is working with Daft Punk in two separate interviews.In February 2012, Nile Rodgers, in an online interview, said that he was going to meet Daft Punk in his apartment in New York to discuss the Daft punk new album. This is big news to many fans. It has been speculated that the Daft punk new album could contain elements of Soul and R&B, as suggested by Rodgers.
Others speculate that due to collaborations with artists from the 1970s and 1980s, the album may also have a Discovery-like sound.
