Daft Punk Will Be Making Their Return To Music Through New Movie Soundtrack
Guess we’re all getting lucky. Grammy-winning electronic duo Daft Punk will be coming back, not with an album this time, but with a movie soundtrack.
According to Billboard, they are working on the soundtrack to a forthcoming film by renowned Italian director Dario Argento, who in an interview with Italian newspaper La Reppublica said the duo called to say they were fans of his work and wanted to contribute to the movie.
“They are my admirers, they know all my cinema,” Argento said. “…They learned that I was shooting a new film and they called me: ‘We want to work with you.'”
According to Argento, Daft Punk is currently writing music for the project and will be sending over demos in the near future. Argento expects the musicians to travel to Rome once it becomes safe to do so in order for all of them to work on the project together.
Daft Punk has not released a new album since their 2013 Grammy-winning release, Random Access Memories. And it has been even longer, over 10 years to be precise, since the duo worked on a film soundtrack since 2010’s Tron: Legacy.
