The first single to be taken from Daft Punk’s third studio album, “Human After All”, is the body thumping, guitar drenched “Robot Rock”. The video for the song will be directed by Thomas Bangalter and Guy Manuel De Homem Christo. This will be their second foray into directing (they directed “Fresh” from the “Homework” album) and is a natural progression for the pair, for whom visual creativity has always been key.
One of the album’s most thundering tracks, “Robot Rock” is a classic Daft Punk moment – in your face, unapologetically over the top, and still a devastatingly classy piece of disco magic. With their trademark vocal effects leading you into the tracks signature sound, a brilliantly beefy electro scale, it once again shows their skill at crafting five minutes of sheer abandonment from a small list of ingredients.
Remixes come courtesy of Soulwax and Daft Punk themselves and will be available on promo soon.
The French electronic duo first came to worldwide attention in 1997, with the release of their debut album, “Homework”, a huge critical and commercial worldwide hit whose impact on the dance scene was revolutionary. This was followed by the equally successful “Discovery”, which again broke ground both musically and visually, through the use of Japanese anime imagery and the portrayal of the band as robots.
