Daft Punk sign to Columbia
2013-01-27 by andcas | 42 Comments

Influential DJ duo, Daft Punk, have officially signed on to Columbia Records, a decision
that was confirmed by a source to The Hollywood Reporter - "It's a Done Deal"

Not including their score work for the 2010 picture Tron: Legacy, all of Daft Punk's
previous efforts were released by Virgin Records, and, once again, excluding Tron,
the last offering by French DJs was 2005's Human After All, which received a largely
mixed reception upon release.

This lengthy hiatus from proper studio work, however, is expected to conclude this year,
with the release of a brand new album, due to release sometime in spring.
No furthers details about the album have been made.

Duo hasn't been good in a while (althought the Tron soundtrack/remix album was fairly strong).

I see them getting worse.

Curious to see whether they're still able to write interesting music, because Tron didn't do it for me.

I thought it was one of the better scores of the year, but it wasn't really anything special, though Derezzed is fucking awesome while high

Yeah, aside from Derezzed I thought it was pretty boring. I don't really listen to soundtracks otherwise, so I don't know about other scores from that year.

The Tron soundtrack was good for the movie, but on its own its pretty dull.

Not one solid album, one ridiculously good album...

Now that I think about it I never heard Discovery in full, just the singles and a few odd songs

I should probably get to listening completely

Curious if everyone saying "one solid album" is talking about Discovery, because Homework is better. Both rule though, and Alive 2007 is fucking great too. It really utilized some stuff on Human After All which was disappointing by itself. New stuff from these guys is good news, but I'm just excited to see them active again because I wanna see these dudes live.

Homework > Discovery yep yep yep

Even the totally flawed and monotonous Human After All is a heck of a lot of fun, hoping for another classic

HAA was enjoyable, albeit flawed. The soundtrack was alright, I guess. Hopefully the new album will pull them out of their slump.

Even if the album sucks, we will probably get a tour out of this. I'm okay with that.

I cross my fingers for one or two more timeless anthems like "Da Funk", "Around the World" or "One More Time". Either way, it's gonna be amazing I am sure =)
