Daft Punk Unveil New Image - Fourth Album To See Release Soon?

French house superstars Daft Punk have unveiled a brand new photo today, confirming that they’ve penned a deal with Columbia Records - and suggesting that a new record may be coming our way soon.

The pro-producer pair last released an album in 2005 with ‘Human After All’, and have been fairly quiet since then, releasing just a couple of singles (including ‘Derezzed’, which featured in Tron) and performing on only a handful of occasions. But now, it looks like the fourth coming of Daft Punk may be just around the corner.

Daft Punk posted their brand new logo/image (pictured) to their website last night, and it features the Columbia logo on the bottom right corner - a clear indicator that a deal with the label has been signed, following their decision to leave EMI in January.

The duo have been working on what will be their fourth studio album with Chic frontman Nile Rodgers, and there’s been speculation as to when it’ll see a release for over a year - with spring 2013 being the most popular guess. Nothing official has been set yet, but with the unveiling of the new image, it may possibly be arriving in stores soon.

As usual with a new record, rumours of touring and performances have been sweeping the net too, with many hoping that they’ll be revealed as the headline act for festivals such as Glastonbury and Coachella Festival.

Bestival organiser Rob da Bank seems to have heard otherwise, though - and said last year: “There's all kinds of crazy rumours flying about at the moment about Daft Punk at Coachella, and The Rolling Stones playing Glastonbury. We got told months ago that Daft Punk were definitely not touring next year, but it keeps the rumour mill going.”

Are you a fan of Daft Punk? Are you excited for the album, or hoping they’ll be touring/performing at a festival this year? Let us know in the comment section below.
