The robots say they still have no plans to tour 'Random Access Memories'
Daft Punk‘s children have dressed up as Daft Punk for a new magazine interview with the French dance duo.
Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo’s kids are pictured alongside model Gisele Bündchen for the Wall Street Journal Magazine’s Innovators Issue.
The pair also made a rare public appearance at the Wall Street Journal Magazine’s annual Innovator Awards in New York City earlier this week (November 6), where they were given year’s Entertainment Innovator gong. The award was presented to them by ‘Get Lucky’ collaborator Pharrell Williams – watch footage of it below.
In a new interview with The Wall Street Journal Magazine, the pair said they still have no plans to tour ‘Random Access Memories’, despite expectation from fans. “We’re not sensitive to any kind of pressure,” Bangalter says. “Because the most valuable thing we have is our own freedom and creative dreams. There’s less value for us in a big bag of money than in a creative idea we want to fulfill. The world we live in today is slightly off because money makes the world go. So we’ve had the freedom to always pick the thing that makes us the most happy.”
Speaking about the huge success of the album’s lead track ‘Get Lucky’, Homem-Christo said: “It’s an unexpected, simple, very cool surprise… Seeing the next car is listening to it, and people are nodding. Or the other day, at a restaurant, seeing kids and mothers having a birthday party, and they’re all dancing. I know it can be annoying, having it everywhere like that, but it seems to have spread.”
Daft Punk’s fourth album ‘Random Access Memories’ was originally released on May 17, 2013. It’s still one of the fastest selling albums of the year in the UK.
