Daft Punk: Random Access Memories
Another piece of the puzzle that is the next Daft Punk album appears, with the confirmation of the album's name and release date.
The fourth album by Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo is to be called Random Access Memories, and comes out on May 21.
Still no confirmation of any live dates, and the speculation around the Daft Punk release continues to build.
In the meantime, with so little to go by, some enterprising fans have made the brief musical background to advert clip that recently emerged into a ten minute loop.
Others have taken the short clip and remixed it as well.
It's been the best part of a decade since their last full album, 2005's Human After All, so you can understand some of the excitement. While there have been live releases, remixes and soundtracks since, none of these have re-shaped the musical landscape as much as their full albums, nor have they really been intended to.
While many details remain to emerge, and expectations running high, the album is certainly one to look forward to. Fingers crossed that it lives up to the hype.
