A podcast looking into Daft Punk’s ‘Discovery’ has been released

Writer of forthcoming book ‘Daft Punk’s Discovery: The Future Unfurled’ Ben Cardew has now created a podcast detailing every track on the French duo’s hit album.

Each episode documents a different track on the record, taking the listener through a step-by-step play of the 2001 number one record.

Brought out by Line Noise Podcast's and dubbed ‘a series of special miniature podcasts devoted to Daft Punk's Discovery’, the new mini podcasts are currently available to listen to on streaming platforms with four episodes currently available.

Each six-minute episode goes into key details of the ‘Discovery’ tracklist, running in chronological order throughout.

In the latest episode, which Cardew says “[looks] at why ‘Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger’ is ENTIRELY misunderstood”, he asks:

“Here’s my theory, if Daft Punk have become robots as they told us in the run-up to Discovery, then what does it mean that a robot’s work is never over? Can the Daft Punk Robots never achieve their dreams?”

Ben Cardew also recently announced his upcoming book which documents the album in further detail. ‘Daft Punk’s Discovery: The Future Unfurled’ will be released this September via Velocity Press.

The book includes over 25 interviews, unreleased material from the duo, and puts emphasis on their hit debut album which changed the shape of electronic music.

Daft Punk parted ways in February, causing a stir between fans. A petition was penned earlier in the year to ‘bring back Daft Punk’, but was later rejected by the government.
