Daft Punk are confused by the hype surrounding their return.The French
electronic duo - Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo - admit they
are puzzled by the response they've received since announcing their 2013
comeback and are struggling to come to terms the huge anticipation surrounding
their upcoming album, 'Random Access Memories'.
Guy-Manuel said: ''Right now my brain is shutting everything down, making me
pretend that everything is normal. It still amazes me that everyone is so crazy
about what we are doing. I'm like, either I am crazy or everybody's crazy.Maybe
I am just dreaming but people seem to really freak out at what we are doing. I
don't know why!'' The musicians are confident about the quality of their new LP
- which combines sounds from the past, present and future - but are concerned
about unveiling it to the public, especially now there has been such an enormous
build up to the release.
Speaking to DazedDigital.com, Thomas explained: ''The music itself is exactly
what we wanted it to be. We have no anxiety about that. Sharing it with the
world is something different. It's a big question mark. There's a certain amount
of excitement and madness that enters the equation.''
