Yes, it’s certainly sad news for all the EDM – Electronic music lovers & Daft Punk fans as we’ll no longer be hearing any more new music from the duo.
The split of the biggest-futurist electronic band Draft Punk was announced via YouTube on Feb 22, 2021, with a clip featured from their movie Electroma. The news was later confirmed by their publicist Kathryn Frazier, however, she did not unveil the real reason behind their split.
The band split is a calling to legacy itself as it’s bye-bye to the 28-year-long journey between iconic producers Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo. Starting from their 1997 debut album Homework to their last album Random Access Memories. As a matter of fact, they showed up in their popular image as masked robots.

Talking briefly about their musicals, their first and second album both were superhits, however, their third album Human After All released in 2005 did not do so well in comparison to their 1st and 2nd album.
Nevertheless Punk’s has set the no.1 hit record with some of the greatest artists like Pharrell in 2013 Get Lucky and similarly with The Weekend on songs like Starboy -their first No 1 single in the U.S. and second I Feel it Coming.

Talking about their awards and achievements, they were nominated for 12 Grammy Awards and similarly won six Grammy for their last album Random Access Memories for album of the year and for superhit track Get Lucky. And talking about their solo career, Guy-Manuel is seen pushing on the disposal button on the back of Thomas who later explodes which might hint at him retiring from the profession.
