The release comes just under year on from Bangalter releasing ‘Mythologies’, his first album since the end of Daft Punk. The long-awaited release comprised Bangalter's orchestral ballet score for the Angelin Preljocaj piece of the same name, which has been in the works since 2021.

Bangalter's only other solo album to date is also a score, for the 2002 Gaspar Noé film Irréversible. As Daft Punk, Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo scored the 2010 Tron: Legacy film, which later got a special remix edition. 

In August last year, Bangalter confirmed fan speculation that the pivotal Daft Punk records ‘Homework’ and ‘Discovery’ were recorded in his bedroom.

‘Homework’ was released in 1997 followed by ‘Discovery’ four years later in 2001. Both records are considered dance classics, as explored in-depth by DJ Mag contributor Gabriel Szatan, whose book on Daft Punk, After Daftwill be released this year.
