Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter Announces New Solo Album Mythologies
Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter has announced a new solo album. Mythologies arrives on April 7 (via Erato/Warner Classics). It’s his first independent orchestral work. Bangalter was originally commissioned by choreographer Angelin Preljocaj for the ballet of the same name back in 2021. Billed as a production about the “founding myths that shape the collective imagination,” it was premiered by the Opéra National de Bordeaux and Ballet Preljocaj the following year.
Mythologies is a 90-minute-long score in which Bangalter reimagines his composition style. In a press release, it’s described as “not” drawing on electronic music, but rather “the large-scale traditional force of a symphony and, as such, it embraces the history of orchestral ballet music.” His last traditional solo album, Outrage, came out in 2003.
In 2018, Bangalter contributed to Gaspar Noé’s Climax soundtrack. Back in 2021, he and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, his bandmate in Daft Punk, announced that they were formally breaking up as a band. Nevertheless, they’ve since rolled out a deluxe vinyl reissue of Homework, as well as the storyboards from their iconic 1997 music video for “Around the World.”
