Ten years after the release of their last album, the most famous Ile-de-France duo in the world, and separated since 2021, lifted the veil on “Infinity Repeating”, one of the nine tracks he recorded in 2013 without ever releasing them.
Four and a half minutes of music, and a clip showing a man walking, this is what the fans present at the Parisian museum of the Center Pompidou – to whom three modes of discovery in association with Ircam were offered – were able to listen to this evening and preview.
A title hovering in line with certain tracks from the album “Random Access Memories” for which it was recorded, “Infinity Repeating” comes from a Daft Punk collaboration with the singer of the Strokes, Julian Casablancas.
It will be unveiled to the rest of the world this Friday, notably on YouTube (just below).
