I searched for this but couldn't find it, even though it's quite old news.

Our favourite French robots are back in the studio making glorious bleeps and bloops while bobbing their heads in unison. Yes, Daft Punk are right back at it - holed up in Paris, recording new music.

The dance act's previous album, 2005's Human After All, received a critical drubbing and Daft Punk seemed destined for the dustbin. But that all changed with a 2006-2007 world tour where, with a giant space-age pyramid, they knocked a thousand dancing shoes right off and now appear keen to put that live magic back on record.

"I can't wait to listen to their new stuff," enthused the band's long-time friend and manager, Busy P, who broke the news of their imminent new album in an interview with In The Mix magazine. "[But] they are slow, you know. They are taking their time, and they have a right."

Indeed, Busy P may have to wait, like the rest of us, until the album is officially released before he can hear what Daft Punk have been cooking up. For after 12 years as their manager, Busy P - real name Pedro Winter - is to step aside. "I've stopped working with them really recently," he said. "I want to concentrate on [my label] Ed Banger, and my own career as Busy P."

We can imagine Busy P now, sitting in his kitchen, reliving old times, dreaming that his microwave and toaster are mumbling in robotic French accents.

Dope that they're meticulous about their work.

We'll have to wait a couple of years, but it'll be worth it.

I think the album will be out sooner than you guys think. They have been in the studio for around a year, Busy p said they were already in the studio in the beginning of 2008. Plus Human After All took 6 weeks to make. So I hope that this album will feel more "complete" because they're spending more time on it.

Discovery is fucking incredible, I didnt like Human After All very much. The pressure that these guys must feel with this album their making must be incredible. It's very hard to drop something like Discovery, and live up to what you did. With that said, Discovery is in my top 10 greatest albums of all time easy, maybe even top 5.

Thomas Bangalter has dj'd alone without the mask.








And I don't care if they have "hype", there considered gods in the electro scene, modern music wouldent be the same without them. I would rather have a cult fan base rather than a fan base of mainstreamers that only listen to whats on the radio.

Good thing that Daft has fans from both spectrums.


Even if the mainstream following only stemmed from Kanye.

More fans means more money in their pockets and who doesnt want that.

If Daft Punk wanted more money they would do alot more tours, tv appearances and interviews. They said in one of the very few interviews they done, that its all about the music, a bit later they said they travelled to the interview on the subway.

I think they're some of the few people who really care more about the music.

I love the fact that they are truly about music and not fame. I didn't mean they want more money, I was just saying the hype probably got them some well earn money.


When they did have "hype", I worried they would sell out and go all commercial, but thank god they stayed the same through the hype.
