French electronic music duo Daft Punk have released the 25th anniversary edition of their debut studio album, Homeworkwhich was originally dropped in 1997. The physical vinyl set is set to be released on April 15. However, enthusiasts can pre-order from Wednesday.
The deluxe edition of Homework will come with 16 original songs from the 1997 album, as well as 15 remixes of the songs. According to reports, about nine of the remixes are unreleased songs that weren’t available for streaming before this drop.
Daft Punk will also bring a one-time livestream session named Twitch of the Mayan 97, which will air their December 17, 1997 concert. The concert would have taken place at the Mayan Theater in Los Angeles.
The latest announcement of the electronic artists releasing the deluxe 25th anniversary edition of Homework comes precisely one year after their split on February 22 last year. Following their return to social media to promote the release of the special edition of their album, speculation of their return has spread across the web.
Many fans now believe that the release of a special edition album on the anniversary of Daft Punk’s disbandment could hint at the return of the iconic duo. However, it seems unlikely that the six-time Grammy-winning artists will return after their indefinite hiatus from music.
