NEW ALBUM: DAFT PUNK | HOMEWORK (25TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION)

A year after announcing their breakup, Daft Punk is back in action to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their groundbreaking 1997 album "Homework" with a new digital release, vinyl reissues and a one-time live stream of a rare performance without their signature helmets. The “Homework 25th Anniversary Edition” contains 15 remixes from the original album (nine of them previously unreleased on streaming services), including a remix of "Around The World" by DJ Sneak, Todd Terry and Kenlou, as well as remixes of "Revolution 909," "Burnin" and "Teachers." Knowing the ways of Daft Punk, it seems possible that other content could materialize around the set. The Parisian duo, considered one of the most influential electronic acts of all time, confirmed the news in an eight-minute video called "Epilogue," which featured footage from their 2006 sci-fi film "Electroma." The video sees the duo — Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo — walking in the desert wearing recognizable space-age helmets and leather jackets. One pair suddenly stops walking in the video and invites the other to initiate the self-destruct sequence on their suit before walking off and exploding. Bangalter shared in an interview following "Homework's" release that its title was derived from "the fact that we made the record at home, very cheaply, very quickly, and spontaneously, trying to do cool stuff." Daft Punk would not deliver sophomore follow-up "Discovery" until 2001. The third album, "Human After All," would follow in 2005, while the duo's most recent studio effort remains in 2013's "Random Access Memories."
