DAFT PUNK – After 28 years of music and a growing list of cult songs, Daft Punk is breaking up The group uploaded this Monday, February 22 an 8-minute long video titled “Epilogue” on Youtube in which the dates 1993-2021 seem to indicate the end of their duo.

Since 2013 and the release of the album “Random Access Memories”, fans have been waiting for musical news from Daft Punk But this February 22, the news is not as happy as they had hoped The electro duo formed by the French Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo announce the end of their collaboration in a video with the evocative title: “Epilogue”

The two helmeted men advance through a desert before one of them, a bomb attached to his back, eventually explodes

However, the last minutes of the video leave hope: as the sun rises and a few notes sound, one of the two men continues his journey through the desert

The scene is actually an excerpt from their science fiction feature film “Electroma” released in 2006 and in which they imagined the journey of robots wanting to become human

Will “Epilogue” be the name of the last joint album of “Daft Punk”? Or does this video really mark the duo’s ultimate collaboration? Contacted by reference site Pitchfork, US press secretary Kathryn Frazier confirmed that this meant the separation of Daft Punk Without explaining the reasons

Emblematic duo of the French touch, Daft Punk started their career in 1993 in Paris before quickly becoming one of the French artists most exported abroad

In their 28-year career, they have recorded “only” 4 albums: “Homework” (1997), “Discovery” (2001), “Human after all” (2005) and “Random Access Memories” (2013 ) And each of these opus hit the nail on the head, marking the ears of several generations with the songs “Around the World”, “Da Funk” then “One More Time” or “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” And, more recently, with “Get Lucky” with Nile Rodgers and Pharrell Williams
