////////// The word Daft Punk is humming over the internet airwaves as the duo set to release their first score for a movie soundtrack. Besides that, there has been news of an upcoming tour for 2011 starting off at Coachella. New Daft material is set to be released but no word if it’s from a new Daft Punk album or scraps from the Disney movie TRON. I can’t see the Daft touring without an album? So either there will be a new album or no tour.
“Making music for a movie is very humbling,” Thomas Bangalter told the LA Times. “We’ve been working on some of our music concurrently.“We like the idea of trying to experiment and do different things we haven’t done in the past.” [Defected]
It has been speculated that Daft Punk will begin their world tour at the Coachella Valley Music and Art Festival, which is April 15th, 16th, and 17th of 2011, just as they did for their Alive tour in 2006/2007. [electronicbeatblog]
