Daft Punk’s ‘Renoma Street’ set for release July 21st? (Update: nope)
Word first broke in late May that Daft Punk was back in the studio, working on some new material with disco producer Giorgio Moroder. Now, French magazine Tsugi has listed a track called “Renoma Street” in its upcoming issue as a forthcoming release from the French duo, attracting a good bit of attention. The track reportedly gets its name from a cafe in Paris known to be frequented by dance music producers, but there isn’t much known besides that.
When pressed on Twitter about the mysterious track, the magazine replied with a cryptic “21/7,” hinting at a possible release (or at least more information) in mid July. Beat My Day notes that the official Daft Punk website is back online and merchandise is being sold, possibly pointing at the impending release of an album — or at least some new material. Of course, given the nature of release schedules and their tendency to change, we’re hesitant to believe this at face value. But you can be assured we’re reaching out to our sources to try to get to the bottom of it.

Update: Pitchfork has confirmed that these leaks are not true, but they maintain that “there is still some sort of Daft Punk project in the works.” We knew it was too good to be true. [Thanks, Stephen!]
