Daft Punk broke up in 2021, and now one-half of the pioneering electronic duo, Thomas Bangalter, has announced a new solo album. Mythologies, out on April 7 on Erato/Warner Classics, is an orchestral suite composed for a ballet directed by Romain Dumas and choreographed by Angelin Preljocaj.


The score represents a departure from Bangalter's best-known work. "The body of work reveals a love of Baroque music and hints to traces of American minimalism," the press release reads, later adding: "This score does not draw on the resources of electronic music but instead involves the large-scale traditional force of a symphony."

Bangalter was first commissioned to work on Mythologies by Preljocaj in 2019. The score was created alongside the Opéra National de Bordeaux. Find the tracklist and cover art below.
