Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter has announced that he is releasing a solo album and showing his face in public for the first time.
The French electronic duo, who split in 2021, still wore space helmets as costumes.
Bangalter’s album, entitled “Mythologies”, will be orchestral. The photo he revealed on Instagram alongside the news is a realistic profile illustration titled “Thomas Bangalter portrait for his new record Mythologies.”
Tracks on the album include titles such as “Premiers Mouvements”, “Le Catch”, “Thalestris”, “Les Gémeaux I”, “Les Amazones” and “L’Arrivée d’Alexandre”. The new music was originally commissioned by choreographer Angelin Preljocaj for a ballet called “Mythologies”.
The album will be released on April 7.
In 2014, Daft Punk performed at the 2014 Grammy Awards, where they won Album of the Year for their “Random Access Memories” album.
