Daft Punk Say New Album Is "Supposed To Suck" While Discussing Career Longevity

7 May 2013, 16:07

The 'Get Lucky' duo say they often wonder when an electronic act will arrive to show them up.

Daft Punk have joked that their new studio album is "supposed to suck" after opening up about their lengthy career in the music industry.

The French house duo are preparing to drop their fourth record 'Random Access Memories' later this month, and say they are often waiting for a new electronic or dance act to come along and upstage them in some way.

"It's always this thing where we're constantly waiting for something that will come in electronic music that says, 'Daft Punk sucks!'" Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter says, in the new issue of GQ magazine. "That's actually much more interesting and exciting than someone who is paying image."

The 'One More Time' star went on to say that Daft Punk are often worried about how long they can go on for without making an album that "sucks", citing a long line of acts who have failed to keep up the quality of their output.

"In Scream 2, they have this discussion about how sequels always suck," he explained. "The thing we can ask ourselves at some point is like, we're making music for 20 years, how many bands and acts do you have that are still making good music after 20 years? It always sucks, almost always you know?

"So our new album is supposed to really suck!" fellow Daft Punk star GuyManuel de Homem-Christo added as a joke.

Last week a clip of a pianist performing a full version of Daft Punk's hit 'Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger' went viral on YouTube.

Daft Punk are still number one on the Vodafone Big Top 40 with their single 'Get Lucky' and release new album 'Random Access Memories' in the UK on 20th May.
