New Daft Punk Will Be Harder, Faster and Stronger

Daft Punk, the enigmatic, helmeted, possibly robotic French electronica duo, have split with their longtime label, Virgin, and will be releasing a new album on Columbia sometime this spring. That, at least, is according to this article Google translated from French.

Daft Punk is finalizing its contract with the label directly to the United States, for a worldwide release. Suffice to say that in France, they will be managed as international artists ... coming from across the Atlantic. An approach that looks increasingly common for French musicians who radiate abroad.We know little more about the album two French, if not it will be done in collaboration with Nile Rodgers of Chic and is one of the most anticipated records of the year, even if the last record of Daft Punk "Human After All" in 2005, was completely missed.

Thanks, Google. You get the idea. The point is, new Daft Punk. Hopefully better than 2005 Daft Punk, and maybe as good as 2001 Daft Punk ...

Thanks for the information -- I await the daft ones. But really, Relevant, why is your Twitter announcement of Daft Punk's new album detracting their work on Tron:Legacy? It was beautiful, powerful, and an appropriate next step after Interstella5555's world-renowned work (remember "One More Time"?).
