Though 2021 marked the end of Daft Punk's illustrious career, the legendary duo remain a prevalently influential force in the contemporary music scene. Journalist Ben Cardew looks to explore their seminal album Discovery in his upcoming book, Daft Punk's Discovery: The Future Unfurled.
Cardew has provided a preview of what information the book may hold. According to RA it features roughly 25 interviews, including excerpts from previously unheard interviews with the iconic robots. The book reportedly also contains discussions with producers who worked with Daft Punk, teachers and journalists who have interviewed them, and other artists who were inspired by them.
Although Homework serves as Daft Punk's debut studio album—with influential hits such as "Around The World" and "Alive"—Discovery is widely considered to be their breakthrough. The aftermath of its release saw the tandem transcend from hit-making producers into subversive, boundary-shattering artists.
