Daft Punk Working on Next Album

Published: 2008-06-03
House duo Daft Punk is working on their fourth full-length studio effort. The new album will be the follow up to the French musicians' third LP, Human After All, which was released back in 2005 on Virgin Records. The new material is being recorded at their Paris studio, the group's former manager, Busy P made it known. However, the only other details Busy P said were that Daft Punk, who are made up of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, are taking their time with writing the next album.

Daft Punk's last album, Human After All, was produced by the two artists themselves, along with CÚdric Hervet and Gildas Loa'c. However, their most successful album to date is probably their 2001 effort, Discovery, which spawned the cult hit, "One More Time", featuring Romanthony. Daft Punk has been together since 1993. Last year, hip hop artist Kanye West popularized the Daft Punk tune, "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" with his version of the song, renamed "Stronger" on his third studio album, Graduation, out last September.

There is NO way that One More Time-If it really IS their greatest hit-was made so by Romanthony. He turned a living breathing general song into a slow sex song that WASN'T what the fans were into, it's the only song I dislike on Daft Club, much less on any of their albums INCLUDING the Technologic Remixes.

Their last album rocked, their next one will even blow that one away.

a lot of fans felt that Human After All was sort of rushed and weak...So I guess it's a good thing to hear that Thomas and Guy are taking their time on this one. As you might know, they took about 10 years to do Discovery, and that was a freaking masterpiece....The only that sucks now is....we're gonna have to wait

Great! And I see it's been at least a year since they started, which means it will easily be better than Human After All.

And to respond to the guy above me; yeah, the Album felt rushed because it of course WAS rushed. :( Tecnologic was the only really memorable song, but amazingly, those 9 (On/Off doesnt count) repetitive tracks made for a SPECTATULAR live album in 07! I think they wanted to focus more on that for the 2004-2009 era. They know what they're doing. ;)

Also, I guess I'm about half a year too late to post here. It feels weird...posting a comment in an old post to where you know that NO ONE is going to read it.
