    Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter has traded in his helmet for a baton. On April 7th, the French musician will release his first solo work since the group’s breakup, an orchestral album called Mythologies.

    The project was initially commissioned in 2019 by choreographer Angelin Preljocaj for a ballet of the same name. The end result is a 90-minute composition that “reveals a love of Baroque music and hints to traces of American minimalism,” according to a press release.

    Update: Bangalter has shared “L’Accouchement” as the first preview of Mythologies. The composition was performed by the Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine under the conduction of Romain Dumas Listen below.


    Pre-orders for Mythologies are ongoing. You can find the album’s artwork and tracklist below.

    After 28 years together, Daft Punk formally called it quits in February 2021. Revisit their 10 most memorable musical moments here.
