Daft Punk Announces Split in Goodbye Video

A publicist for the famed duo confirmed the news.

Daft Punk, the electronic music duo that helped shaped the genres of dance and house, has officially called it quits. The news was announced in a YouTube video, titled “Epilogue,” posted to Daft Punk’s official channel earlier this morning. A publicist for the duo confirmed the news to Pitchfork, but provided no specific reason for the break up.

Formed in 1993 by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, Daft Punk broke onto the scene in 1995 with hit singles “Da Funk” and “Alive,” which were later included in debut album Homework. The duo went on to release “Harder, Better Faster, Stronger” and “One More Time,” two more wildly successful singles, and again found massive success with “Get Lucky,” the lead track off 2013 album Random Access Memories. Expanding their mainstream appeal, Daft Punk later co-produced several songs off Kanye West‘s Yeezus and collaborated with The Weeknd on chart-topping single “Starboy.”
