The book will focus on the legacy of Daft Punk’s 2001 studio album, ‘Discovery’
A new book about Daft Punk’s 2001 ‘Discovery‘ album containing over 25 interviews and “unreleased interview material” will be published in September. The book is written by Ben Cardew and is called ‘Daft Punk’s Discovery: The Future Unfurled’. The book according to Cardew will focus on “a homage to a fascinating, troubled beast of an album that casts a huge shadow over the 21st Century.” It has been reported that Ben Cardew had finished the book some time ago but had to re-draft because of the duo’s split in February.
‘Discovery’ is Daft Punk’s second album that was released by Virgin Records back in 2001. The album focused on primarily house and disco sounds which was much different from their traditional Chicago house sound. ‘Discovery’ features hit Daft Punk songs including ‘One More Time’ and ‘Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.’
The book can be pre-ordered now in both paperback and electronically for £13 and £10. Those who decide to pre-order the book now will have their names printed in the book and will be able to receive their copy a month early.
