In the eight-year interim since Daft Punk released their last studio album, quasi-anonymous EDM producers have become a dime a dozen. In case you forgot about the duo who first made waves wearing robot uniforms and performing from inside a giant pyramid, Daft Punk have inked a deal with Columbia Records and are working with famed producer Nile Rodgers to put together a record for release as soon as this Spring, claims The Hollywood Reporter. According to their report, Daft Punk may have recorded with “Panda Bear, Nile Rodgers, Giorgio Moroder, Paul Williams, and Feist collaborator Chilly Gonzalez” for the album. UPDATE: UK’s The Guardian is backing up THR, being even more specific, claiming the album will be out in May. That’s all we know right now, but we’ll keep you posted as we learn more. Let’s hope for some festival appearances this summer!
