Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter has announced a new solo album. Mythologies arrives on April 7 via Erato/Warner. It’s his first independent orchestral work. Bangalter was originally commissioned by choreographer Angelin Preljocaj for the ballet of the same name back in 2021. Billed as a production about the “founding myths that shape the collective imagination,” it was premiered by the Opéra National de Bordeaux and Ballet Preljocaj the following year.

Mythologies is a 90-minute-long score in which Bangalter reimagines his composition style. In a press release, it’s described as “not” drawing on electronic music, but rather “the large-scale traditional force of a symphony and, as such, it embraces the history of orchestral ballet music.”

In 2018, Bangalter contributed to Gaspar Noé’s Climax soundtrack. Back in 2021, he and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, his bandmate in Daft Punk, announced that they were formally breaking up as a band. However, they’ve since rolled out a deluxe vinyl reissue of Homework as well as the storyboards from their iconic 1997 music video for “Around the World.”
