Daft Punk's 'Homework' and 'Alive 1997' are being reissued on vinyl.

The vinyl reissues of Daft Punk's debut album and their first live album will come out on February 25 via EMI and follows the announcement that the robots are no more.

'Homework' - originally released in 1997 - features tracks such as 'Da Funk', 'Around The World' and 'Burnin'', while 'Alive 1997' was recorded at Que Club in Birmingham - as part of the French pair's first EU tour - and was released in 2001.

Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo announced their split after 28 years in a video titled 'Epilogue'. The video clip was taken from their 2008 film Electroma, with an added graphic reading '1993-2001'.

The announcement of the split led to a host of tributes, with words coming from the likes of Disclosure, Sherelle, SG Lewis and more.

It didn't take long for YouTube account Flip Reality to recreate Daft Punk's iconic Alive 2007 set in virtual reality on VR DJ application Vinyl Reality.
