French electronic outfit Daft Punk join Columbia Records with a new album set to be released this spring.
It seems like light years since Daft Punk released Human After All so we’re glad to hear the wait for some new material won’t be too long now. According to reports from NME, the French duo left Virgin/EMI for Columbia Records, and a brand new studio album will be with us in a matter of months. Since their last album, the soundtrack for Tron: Legacy back in 2010, Daft Punk have been hard at work with Nile Rodgers, a Simpsons appearance and collaborations with Academy Award-winning composer Paul Williams and disco legend Giorgio Moroder. Now that I think about it, I can let the six year gap slide. One slight disappointment is that despite the rumours, the pair will not be at Coachella this year and after looking at the somewhat lacklustre line up, their presence will be sorely missed. Still, at least we have some great new music to look forward to this spring.
