Daft Punk Reveal ‘Alive 1997’/’Alive 2007’ Vinyl Box Set

    Daft Punk may have stepped out of the public eye a bit since the excitement surrounding smash 2013 album Random Access Memories died down, but the French electronic duo have announced that they have a released planned for 2014 after all: an elaborate vinyl box set featuring their standout live albums Alive 1997 and Alive 2007.

    The box set will reportedly include plenty of goodies, from a 52-page hardcover photo book to a replica VIP concert pass. Both albums will also be available on vinyl individually, according to Modern Vinyl.

    Alive 1997, recorded at the Que Club in Birmingham and released in 2001, features a single, 45-minute live mix of the duos tracks, recorded the same year that their massive debut album Homework was released. It was last printed on vinyl over a decade ago.

    Alive 2007, recorded at Bercy in Paris, compiles tracks from Daft Punk’s first three albums, including all the big hits from Discovery and Human After All such as “One More Time,” “Robot Rock,” “Technologic” and “Harder Better Faster Stronger.” The live album also netted Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo two Grammy Awards for “Best Electronic/Dance Album” and “Best Dance Recording” for the mix “Around the World / Harder Better Faster Stronger.” This will be the first time that Alive 2007 has been printed on vinyl.

    The box set will reportedly be out December 19 in Europe and, according to NME, December 22 in the U.K. No release date for the U.S. has yet been revealed.
