Daft Punk Signs to Columbia, Releasing New Album in May
Ground-breaking French half-human, half-robot electronic music duo Daft Punk will reportedly release the follow-up to 2005′s Human After All this May.
According to an article by the Guardian, which backs up weekend rumors regarding Daft Punk, states that the group, made up of reclusive and mythic Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, have “signed a new record deal with the Sony-owned Columbia label” with a new album to be released in May of 2013.
This comes after years of rumors and speculations as to the duo’s next move. Following 2007′s tour “Alive,” which resulted in the live album Alive 2007, the group remained relatively hidden, only to surface in 2010 with the Tron: Legacy soundtrack album and a feature in the movie. However, since then there has been little concrete news about a new album or new tour, despite their constant placement as a possible headliner for Coachella and other festivals.
Little is known about the upcoming as-yet-untitled album, so check back to the Music Blog on M-A Bear News often for updates.
