The highly influential French DJ duo has released three albums via EMI. A new album, their first in seven years, is expected this spring.

Sony Music is ramping up its dance music arsenal. Just three days after announcing a new strategic alliance with Ultra Records, a leading label of the EDM movement, news is emerging that Columbia Records has signed Daft Punk. A source confirms toThe Hollywood Reporter, "It's a done deal."

The revered, reclusive and highly influential French DJ duo had released all previous recordings via EMIs Virgin Records, now owned by Universal, with the exception of its most recent full-length, DisneysTron: Legacy, which Daft PunksGuy-Manuel de Homem-ChristoandThomas Bangalterscored.http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/earshot/daft-punk-signs-columbia-records-415666

Pfft.... They're nothing compared to old school 80's new wave :P

(Either way I'm excited for both Daft Punk and Depeche Mode's new albums)

I'm one of the few who enjoyed Human After All, it wasn't bad. Not as good as Discovery, but still really good.

My only issue with Human After All was the repetition and their theme which just wasn't ambitious compared to Discovery. I liked Human After All but I felt like they didn't put in the effort compared to Discovery.

Daft Punk? The only music I know from them is the "work it harder make it better..." song (the exact name slips my mind) and it was pretty good.

I find it REALLY strange that people haven't heard Daft Punk, i don't get how people haven't. It's like not knowing AC/DC, Tupac or Johnny Cash.

God I hope it's better than Human After All. I love their first two albums but that one is terrible and Tron's music is just boring.

Tron's music was nerfed by Disney because it was considered too Daft Punky.

Saw both the duo and the band play live the same night lol. It was quite ironic of LCD playing the song just hours before they actually blew our minds. Dat encore...

That is one of the most terrible repetitive songs I have ever heard and pretty much has no lyrics.

Because music needs lyrics to be good right?

Should've been pretty clear that lyricism isn't exactly their core business.

All of you ignored the part where I said that the song is terribly repetitive. Because it is. Listening to that same set of notes for 5 minutes is horrible. At least most other electronic music changes things up a bit. Repeating "around the world" 100 times doesn't help either.

Digital Love is a fantastic track
