Watch Daft Punk’s album advert, featuring new music from the duo
Last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live featured an advert for the beyond-hyped new album by Daft Punk.
Said advert featured 15 seconds of new music, presumably by the group, and the internet has predictably exploded.
You can stream said 15 seconds – which, it has to be said, certainly sounds like Nile Rodgers may have had a hand in – below, keep up to date with the rest of the Daft Punk rumour millhere, and listen to a recently unearthed DJ set from the group’s Thomas Bangalter here.

Tiesto confirms Las Vegas Residency
The world’s most famous DJ is going to undertake a residency in Las Vegas.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Tiësto has confirmed he’s lined up a twenty-month deal with MGM.
His residency will begin in April, and comprises of over forty gigs at the new five-level Hakkasan Las Vegas Restaurant and Nightclub.
Tiësto revealed that he enjoys being in America:
“With the scene blowing up in America, Vegas is so much fun now…It’s the right time to do it. I do everything on my gut feeling, and I felt like it’s gonna be awesome there. I’ve been to Ibiza for 10 years, and I love Ibiza, but I always look for something new and a new challenge.”
The move by the DJ is also informed by his desire to focus on producing music:
“I can be more in the studio with artists [this way] instead of just bouncing tracks back and forth, and really produce other people’s albums and songs. So that’s going to be the biggest change…It doesn’t matter if they’re famous or not – I just want to meet other creative people who can maybe bring something different to the studio than what I have. I think that’s the most important thing for me.”
This news follows the announcement earlier in the week that British mega DJ Calvin Harris is also taking up a spot at Hakkasan in Las Vegas.
