Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter has released his original soundtrack for the movie Daaaaaalí!, directed by Quentin Dupieux, aka Mr. Oizo.
The soundtrack, performed and composed by Bangalter, is available now via Ed Banger Records in both limited 10" format and digitally through various streaming services.
According to the press release, the record celebrates the golden age of music and cinema, with the director and composer both sharing a "love for classic and timeless film scores."
Predo Winter, label boss at Ed Banger Records said: “Releasing this soundtrack with two of my all-time favourite artists felt like a natural and obvious choice! Since ‘Steak’ in 2007, Ed Banger Records has released most of Quentin Dupieux's original soundtracks. When he told me he wanted to involve Thomas Bangalter in his project DAAAAAALÍ!, I knew it would become something special.”
The release comes just under a year on from Bangalter releasing ‘Mythologies’, his first album since the end of Daft Punk. The long-awaited release featured Bangalter's orchestral ballet score for Angelin Preljocaj's piece of the same name had been in the works since 2021.
