Daft Punk Sign With Columbia Records For New Album

Written by Kiel Egging on January 27, 2013

Daft Punk have switched record companies, signing with Columbia Records to release their much-hyped new album, which is tipped to drop in the next few months.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that the French dance music titans have switched to the Sony Music subsidiary label, with a source telling the publication, “It’s a done deal”.

The duo released their three previous albums on Virgin Records – the last one being 2005’s Human After All. Virgin Records is now owned by Universal.

Daft Punk’s long-awaited new album has been the subject of countless rumours over its contents and collaborators. Consequence of Sound reports that a diverse range of musicians have reportedly contributed to the new album, including Chic frontman Nile Rodgers and disco legend Giorgio Moroder.

The announcement of the record label switch follows on from reports from French newspaper Le Parisien – who reported recently that the album will be released in “spring”. Considering the location of the paper, spring could refer to autumn when it comes to Australia’s proximity. The publication also said that the band were currently finalising their contract directly with Columbia Records’ reps in the United States for a worldwide release.
