Daft Punk

Daft Punk is set to release their first studio album in eight years in May.

The French duo, which consists of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, have signed a new record deal with the Sony-owned Columbia label.

Not much is known about the outfit's planned fourth studio album, although the list predicted list of possible collaborators is long. Chic co-founder Nile Rodgers recently hinted that it would be released soon, and Oscar-winning songwriter Paul Williams, Feist collaborator Chilly Gonzales,  Animal Collective's Panda Bear and disco pioneer Giorgio Mooroder (via a spoken monologue) are among those who have reportedly collaborated with Daft Punk over the past few years.

Daft Punk last played in the UK at Wireless festival in 2007, but the chances of any new live shows are not promising, especially after rumors were squashed that the duo would play at this spring's Coachella Music and Arts Festival.
