Daft Punk working on new album

    Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo have closed down the Daft Punk pyramid and are working on a new album. Australian website Inthemix snagged an interview with former Daft Punk manager Busy P, who talks about their tentative plans for a new album in this article. “The boys are in a studio in Paris at the moment,” he says. “And I can’t wait to listen to their new stuff! The good thing is that they are making music at the moment.”

    Busy P doesn’t reveal anything about the direction the new material is taking, although transforming the jaw-dropping Daft Punk live sound into a studio environment is clearly going to take some time. “They are slow, you know,” he says “They are taking their time, and they have a right.” He also reveals that he has stopped managing Daft Punk, cutting short a relationship that lasted for 12 years so he can concentrate on his own Ed Banger record label.
