​Reddit users say they’ve found a leaked Daft Punk track

Rumors of a new Daft Punk track, album or tour are constantly swirling around the internet, but more recently Reddit users say they found a leaked track that has sparked increased chatter.

Earlier this week a mysterious Soundcloud user with the handle “User19972001200420132019” uploaded a track titled ‘x’, which spans just 17 seconds. This is the only upload to come from this account.

The sound profile of the track features a classic French electro motif with deep robot vocals possessing a likeness to previously released Daft Punk material. Once the track was posted on the r/daftpunk subreddit, the debate began on whether this could possibly be a new Daft Punk track.

While many users doubt the snippet’s authenticity, some have pointed out that this leak appeared in a similar way to past confirmed leaks. In 2017, the track ‘Overnight’ leaked before Daft Punk officially released it, surfacing in a similar way as this recent "leak".

Those who believe the leak is authentic suggest it may have been produced around the time of the duo’s Tron soundtrack material and have pointed out how similar this leak is to other Daft Punk tracks and performances:

Plus, despite the disbelief of various users that this could be new music forthcoming, moderators of the subreddit have added a touch of mystery and intrigue:

That being said, like all other Daft Punk rumors that have surfaced in recent years, without confirmation we can't regard this leak as authentic. Only time will tell if the duo have plans to release new music, or dare we say it... tour again.
