Tuesday February 26th, I was going through my normal morning routine when I noticed something strange; Daft Punk had updated their Facebook cover photo. I felt my heart racing and immediately started searching for any new information about the band. Were they finally releasing a new album? Are they going on tour? Will I finally get a chance to see them perform? The legendary electronic DJ duo has been on radio silence since their 2010 TRON: Legacy soundtrack release.
This morning, around 3:00am ET, Daft Punk sent out a press release stating their new album “Random Access Memories” is expected to hit stores on May 21st, 2013. The album is now available for pre-order through iTunes and I have already placed my order.
Daft Punk has been notorious for mysterious websites, simple press releases, and a general lack of information. The new album website RandomAccessMemories.com doesn’t give us more than a few share icons and a pre-order link. Regardless, with small sound bites and a few metallic helmets, the fans are satisfied to know they are back in action.
As a die hard fan, all I have to say is #WelcomeBackDaftPunk!
