After a year of radio silence following the announcement of their split, iconic French electronic duo Daft Punk has revived their social media accounts. So far, they’ve released images, promoted a Twitch stream of an old live show, and announced a legacy re-release of one of their classic albums.

This has caused some fans to speculate whether this means they are prepping for a comeback, but there haven’t been any substantive statements from the group, comprised of Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, yet. The first post that Daft Punk made on their long-dormant social accounts came yesterday and was this captionless photo, which featured the name of the band in the style of their 1997 debut album Homework‘s cover.

This photo blew up immediately with tons of theories swirling about their revived activity since the announcement of their split last year came as an unpleasant surprise to fans after a long break following their last album release, Random Access Memories, in 2013.

A mere hours after the first post went up, a stream went live on a Twitch account connected to the band, which ran footage from a 1997 Los Angeles nightclub show that featured the group performing without their signature robotic-style helmets. This was also advertised on Twitter, and those who got to tune in were lucky because it seems the concert was only streamed that one time.

The most recent tweet from the account is advertising the release of a 25th-anniversary version of Homework, which is available now on streaming and also has a vinyl edition available for pre-order.


Homework featured classic singles such as “Around the World” and “Da Funk.” The album catapulted Daft Punk to mainstream success and is credited for popularizing French House music. It also gained attention from its experimental music videos, one of which was directed by Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind director Michel Gondry before his mainstream film breakthrough.
