Sony Music is ramping up its dance music arsenal. Just three days after announcing a new strategic alliance with EDM powerhouse Ultra Records, news is emerging that Columbia Records has signed Daft Punk. A source confirmed that it's a "done deal."
The revered, reclusive and highly influential French DJ duo had released all previous recordings via EMI's Virgin Records, now owned by Universal, with the exception of its most recent full-length, Disney’s Tron: Legacy, which Daft Punk’s Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter scored.
Prior to Tron, the last proper Daft Punk album was 2005’s "Human After All."
