Daft Punk Sign To Columbia. New Album Due This Spring
28 January 2013
8 years since Daft Punk's last full length release 'Human After All' and 4 years since the Tron: Legacy Soundtrack, news has finally emerged of the French duo leaving long time collaborators EMI for Sony subsidiary Columbia Records.
But that's not the exciting bit.
With this new deal the pair plan to release their fourth album this spring, as hinted by one of their most recent collaborators, Chic's frontman Nile Rodgers. According to NME, Oscar-winning songwriter Paul Williams, disco pioneer Giorgio Moroder, and Feist collaborator Chilly Gonzales will also be contributing to the upcoming LP.
Daft Punk challenged heavy speculation by not topping this year’s Coachella bill, allegedly turning down a “gigantic sum of money” to perform at the festival. We're still hoping a tour is on the cards for later this year.
