DAFT PUNK GET DOWN TO WORK

The duo plan to set their "own agenda" for the follow-up to 'Discovery'...

DAFT PUNK say they are setting their “own agenda” for the follow-up to their last album ‘DISCOVERY’.

The French duo have started working on the new record but remain tight-lipped about the new material, merely saying that they are “experimenting”.

They said: “The way the music industry is at the moment is allowing us to experiment. If everything is formulaic and we can finance ourselves to work outside of that formula, then for us there are no rules. We’re setting our own agenda.”

However, the Daft Punk boys told Mixmag: “Nothing is anywhere near complete.”

In the meantime, today (December 1) sees the release of the duo’s previously internet-only ‘Daft Club’ collection (featuring remixes by the likes of The Neptunes and Basement Jaxx) and the DVD of their animated feature ‘Interstella 5555: The 5tory Of The 5ecret 5tar 5ystem’.
