    Man that link is really misleading. Daft Punk confirmed nothing, some guy said that they re-signed, then another guy said new album in March. Considering this is like the 5th time a dates been set in 6 months, I'll enjoy this with the new My Bloody Valentine album when that comes out.

    I think it may be time to get ready...



    This kind of reminds me of the "ninetynine" commercial that came out on MTV promoting the Fragile. A simple commercial but it did it's job...

    I've never been so happy to be wrong, on both counts.

    I have a feeling a new record probably won't be out sometime this spring, I'm thinking they may push it towards a summer release. Of course, this teaser could just be the first step in the announcement and perhaps they've got something ready to go for a May release date?

    Guess we'll just have to see...

    I'm currently dreaming of NIN and Daft Punk at Lollapalooza this year.

    MBV releasing something soon was a way far-fetched than Daft Punk coming out with something new. So I wouldn't be surprised. Talk to me about Boards of Canada tho.

    Dont really think Daft Punk have done anything OF WORTH since Discovery 12 years ago. I think its already been a good year for music and its just turned March!
    I hope Daft Punk adapt to a more contemporary style and stop being all retro. Sorry but Human After All was appalling and one of the most annoying records i have ever heard. They recorded it all in two weeks for some reason....i find the whole robot thing really boring. Anyway there seems to be a lot of good sounds for Daft Punk to draw from in electronic sphere at the moment, knowing how good they were i still have hope this will be a good record. They were truly amazing in the 90s. But crikey its been a long time.

    For me, Human After All is a bit below the one-two punch of Homework and Discovery, but I still enjoy it. The Prime Time Of Your Life is awesome, especially that devastating ending. Does it feel a bit rushed? Sure, but even rushed Daft Punk sounds good to these ears and these feet.

    Nice that we're finally getting some new Daft Punk, love these guys!
    I guess it hasn't been *THAT* long if you count the Tron Legacy soundtrack, that stuff was maybe even better than some of the stuff on their last album.

    Daft Punk is probably the only artist left on my "must see live before I die" list. Here's to hoping they do a full North American tour this fall or something to promote whatever release they have up their sleeve.

    This is from way back in September, so it's unlikely. We shall see though.

    Website's updated with the same image from the commercial, too! Absolutely nothing else on the page, but it's still pretty exciting, considering what a dead zone their website's been for the last few years.

    The guy third from the left is absolutely Nicolas Godin - bass player/songwriter extraordinaire from Air. Guy on the far right I would bet is from Phoenix, especially since Daft Punk made that crazy surprise appearance at their MSG show a while back.

    Conclusion: French bands stick together.

    I would love to find out later that members of Air and Phoenix played on the new Daft Punk album. That would be awesome.

    Nah, this is what they looked like in 1997, I'm assuming that pic I posted is from recently (the two guys on the left).

    Yeah you can find pics (usually from the mid-90's) fairly easily online. As for more recent stuff, there's the odd video, like this one of Bangalter from about 3.5 years ago. He's the guy that shows up to start playing at about 1:05 in the glasses and grey NIKE shirt.

    New information!

    http://pitchfork.com/news/49993-sony...ft-punk-songs/

    Fan site the Daft Club points to some pretty solid proof that Daft Punk's next full-length is on the way: Sony Music (which owns Columbia Records, who recently cemented a partnership with the duo) has registered 13 untitled tracks via PPL, the UK-based organization that licenses recorded music and distributes royalties. They range in length from 3:48 to 9:04. Check out the breakdowns of track lengths below.
    As of yet, no specifics on the new Daft Punk album have been released, but collaborator Nile Rodgers maintains there's a new record coming this year.

    Track 01 4:34
    Track 02 5:21
    Track 03 9:04
    Track 04 3:48
    Track 05 5:37
    Track 06 5:53
    Track 07 8:18
    Track 08 6:07
    Track 09 4:50
    Track 10 5:41
    Track 11 4:39
    Track 12 4:11
    Track 13 6:21
