The French dance duo Daft Punk are breaking up. They let this know in a video of no less than 8 minutes entitled ‘Epilogue’, a fragment from their 2006 film Electrorama. A reason for the break is unknown.
Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo stop Daft Punk. The Parisian duo has worked together since 1993, although their first album was released Homework only released in 1997. It was a milestone, with unforgettable songs like ‘Around the world’ and ‘Da funk.’
Their signature robot outfits popped up for the release of sequel Discovery in 2001. The hits ‘One more time’ and ‘Harder, better, faster, stronger’ confirmed their status as world stars. Unforgettable are also the video clips on that record: short but delicious anime episodes that together form the extremely amusing film Interstella 5555.
In the years that followed, the group remained ubiquitous in the collective imagination, with their third album Human after all, de live LP Alive 2007 and the soundtrack for it Tron: Legacy.
Twenty years after the very beginning, the duo released the album Random access memories let loose on the world, with the commercial ‘Get lucky’, good for millions of euros and two Grammy awards. The collaboration with Pharrell Williams also resulted in ‘Lose yourself to dance’. The entire album added three more Grammys to Daft Punk’s record. Album of the year was one of them.
