Daft Punk will ink new deal with Columbia, according to reports

By Ezekiel Hernandez,
The group will reportedly release their first album under Columbia this year.

Grammy Award-winning French DJ duo Daft Punk has reportedly signed on to record under Columbia Records. The group is rumored to be releasing a new album sometime early this year.

A source with knowledge of the deal told The Hollywood Reporter that the signing is a “done deal.” Specifics of the deal have yet to be made public, and no formal announcement has been made yet by the label or the group.

If the reports are true, the group will split with their label since 1997, EMI.
The electric house group is best known for their club singles, “One More Time,” “Da Funk," and “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger."

According to Billboard.com, several reports from publications in France say the group is indicating they are looking to release their new album in spring this year. This would be their first full-length album since Human After All in 2005.

The group also composed the soundtrack to the movie Tron: Legacy in 2010, and it was released by Walt Disney Records.
