WATCH: Daft Punk Release New Album 'Random Access Memories' In The Middle Of Nowhere

Posted: Updated:

Daft Punk have finally released their long-awaited new album 'Random Access Memories'.

And the famously reclusive French duo have proved their eccentricity has not deserted them in the eight years since their last outpouring.

Robots and a giant bunny have turned up for the launch of their latest album in a tiny Australian town called Wee Waa.

This - the pair's fourth album - is one of the most highly anticipated music launches of the year, but don't expect the pair - Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo - to mark the occasion by coming out from the helmets they've been wearing for all photos since 1995.

They recently told the Guardian: "The robots are part of the fiction and it's not really interesting to see what's behind it... When you look at C-3PO and Darth Vader and then look at the actors behind them you can't really make the connection. It kills the magic. I feel the robots are the same... They're more interesting than us for sure."

Meanwhile, it has been reported that singer Romanthomy, who sang on Daft Punk's smash hit 'One More Time', has died at his home in Texas.
