Daft Punk brings back the disco era

Usually I don’t write about other musicians, but I should! Especially about them who I like. Daft Punk is one of them. While I got first in touch with their sound by my brother back in the 90s, I followed their musical career in the past 13 years and they have become unquestionably one of the most awarded artists ever.

Now, eight years since their last studio album Human After All, they’re gonna release their new Album Random Access Memories on 21st May, 2013 on Columbia Records. It contains a phenomenal set of guest appeareances, such as Giorgio Morauder, Pharrell Williams, Nile Rodgers, Todd Edwards and some more. Some of these people had big influence in the disco era in the 70s. First single of that album might be “Get Lucky” featuring Pharrell Williams (Vocals) and Nile Rodgers (Guitar). The time couldn’t be better to release an album with this kind of music – in a world, where synthetic sound is everywhere, but no groove anymore. This could become the best-selling Daft Punk album ever.
