New Daft Punk Album Imminent
Alongside the music portion of SXSW, The Film expo rages on, including yesterday, with the screening of "Paul Williams: Still Alive", a documentary on the man most famous perhaps for penning the Muppets classic "Rainbow Connection", and featured a post film Q&A with the man himself.His legacy also includes the music for influential cult film, Phantom Of The Paradise. Before asking what that is and who it's influential too, I'll tell you right now. Daft Punk. Who have been working with Paul on their latest album as has been previously reported and according to multiple sources, he spilled the beans last night in brief mention that the collaboration is indeed coming along and the album could be out as early as June of this year.
“I have written songs for Daft Punk. This material will appear on their new album, coming maybe June” - Paul Wiliams
(a stellar quote, I know) Let the speculation and school girl giggles with glee begin!
UPDATE: Pitchfork reports that the Daft camp have indicated no plans to release an album this June.
