Daft Punk surprised us all when they announced their split in 2021 after nearly three decades of pioneering work.

Since then though, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo have kept us going with a series of special archive releases and remixes.

First came the 25th anniversary reworking of their debut Homework, featuring a host of new remixes, followed by a 10th anniversary version of fourth album Random Access Memories, packed with studio outtakes.

There's also been the ongoing Memory Tapes documentary series.

And now they've returned to 2013's Random Access Memories once more – the long-awaited follow-up to 2005's Human After All – to present the album in a completely different and much more chilled out form.
