Since the release of TRON: LEGACY and the Daft Punk-produced soundtrack, it has introduced the French duo to a whole new audience.

This mini-documentary by WatchMojo tells the story of Daft Punk, so far – where they started and how they progressed in both their music and appearance and how they have helped bring electronic/house music into the mainstream.


Daft Punk ‘Tron: Legacy’ headphones by wearesme

Earlier in the year SME brought the Entourage news that Daft Punk would be producing the soundtrack to Disney’s sequel to 80’s cinematic classic ‘Tron’. Then, last month, SME gave you a 6 minute preview of the ‘Tron: Legacy’ score.

The Daft Punk/Tron collabo continues with the bad-man head-cans you see above. They’re the brainchild of audio company Monster, the same geezers (geezettes?) who gave us the serious Dr Dre headphones you’ve seen every Tom, Dick and Harry bustin’ on the Northern Line to work.

The headphones come with LED lights (as standard), an homage to the luminescent lighting that can be seen throughout the film franchises. SME will give you a knowing nod when you’re wearing them in a sweaty train carriage too.


Daft Punk in TRON : LEGACY + Soundtrack Preview by wearesme

This is the first look at the legendary Daft Punk appearing in the new Disney film Tron:Legacy.

Tron is the sequel to 1982’s Tron, and stars Jeff Bridges and Olivia Wilde. The sci-fi film is scheduled to arrive in cinemas on December 17 and will be available in 3D at participating cinemas. Check out the trailer:

Daft Punk have also been charged with writing the soundtrack to the film, and a snippet of one of the songs ‘The Game Has Changed’ has been released and can be heard on the Tron: Legacy Facebook page.

The soundtrack will be released Dec 7, 10 days before the movie’s release.

The snippet sounds sick! We cant wait to hear more new material from these guys.

According to Amazon, Daft Punk are set to release their first full album since 2005 in November.

The album in question is the French duo’s soundtrack to upcoming film ‘Tron: Legacy’ and would be the follow up to last album ‘Human After All’.

Amazon’s online listings claim that the album will be out on 23rd November in the U.S. However, there is yet to be an official announcement made by Daft Punk or their record label.

Finger crossed. SME x
