A cryptic SoundCloud upload has some speculating it’s a Daft Punk ‘leak’
The speculation surrounding a Daft Punk reunion on the final day of Ultra Music Festival has continued to mount since the iron-on patches enclosed in the Ultra 20 ticket canisters originally spawned speculation that Daft Punk would close out the festival. A SoundCloud upload entitled “x” by a “User19972001200420132019” has made its way to the r/daftpunk, and despite some Redditors’ doubts, many believe the track to be an “unconfirmed leak” of some kind. The moderators of the subreddit reportedly know the source of the “leak” and have determined that the SoundCloud post could be legitimate.
User19972001200420132019’s supposed leak has since been compared to a previous “leak” of “Overnight,” a single that Daft Punk released in 2017. Redditors have also questioned the significance of the username. Some perceive the series of numbers to be arbitrary, whereas other have suggested that the years represent album release dates.
The SoundCloud post surfaces — for now — as a connection to a possible Daft Punk anniversary performance at Ultra Music Festival that is tenuous at best.
