Arrow Daft Punk Embraces Universal Themes With Ground-Breaking New CD 'Human After All'

Daft Punk Embraces Universal Themes With Ground-Breaking New CD 'Human After All'; Duo's Third Studio Album to Hit Stores March 25; First Single Is "Robot Rock"

NEW YORK, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Virgin Records recording artist Daft Punk is set to revolutionize dance floors and music playlists once again with the release of their innovative new album "Human After All," hitting stores on March 25. The CD is the follow-up to 2001's RIAA gold-certified "Discovery," which sold 2.6 million copies around the world and contained the smash hit "One More Time" (which reached #1 in France, Canada, Japan, and Portugal, #2 in the UK, and #1 on Billboard's Dance/Club Play Chart). The new album's first single will be the body-thumping, guitar-drenched "Robot Rock"; the video for the song will be directed by the Daft Punk duo themselves -- Frenchmen Thomas Bangalter and Guy Manuel de Homem.

"Human After All" was recorded at Daft Punk's home studio in Paris between September and November of 2004. Notoriously press-shy-and uniquely loath to have their photos taken for publication -- the duo did have this to say to British music magazine NME in January 2003: "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."

Indeed, the duo does strike out on their own singular path on "Human After All." Creating some of the most assertive and uncompromising music of their career, Daft Punk has married emotion and technology in a way that perfectly mirrors the fast-paced and hard-hitting rhythms of our modern lives. Songs like "The Prime Time of Your Life," "The Brainwasher," and the title track are state-of-the-art aural soundscapes that take the exhilaration of techno and the beat-driven delirium of dance music to bold new heights. And for those quieter moments, demonstrating that not all human feelings can be exhibited on the dance floor, the pair has created a pair of soulful and affecting romantic themes, "Make Love" and "Emotion."

Pioneers of electronic music, Daft Punk have been astonishing the dance and pop worlds with their versatility and inventiveness since they first exploded onto the scene in 1997 with their Virgin Records debut, the RIAA gold-certified "Homework," which included the hits "Da Funk" and "Around the World," and which sold more than 2 million copies worldwide. Daft Punk videos directed by the likes of Spike Jonze, Michel Gondry and anime legend Leiji Matsumoto have further enhanced the pair's reputation for artistic daredevilry. Now, treading fearlessly into bold new territory with "Human After All," Daft Punk continues to take music to the outer reaches of human possibility.

i enjoy alot of electro and trip-hop, as well as experimental rock-pop or alternative rock-pop.
Daft punk are one of the best around!

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
