Revered Parisian house duo Daft Punk will release a double-sided DVD titled "D.A.F.T.: A Story About Dogs, Androids, Firemen And Tomatoes," on Tuesday. In 1997, Daft Punk stormed the U.S. with their debut album, Homework.
The DVD, which will also be available in VHS format, contains five music videos, including a new clip for "Fresh," the directorial debut of the duo, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo. Also included are a Daft Punk photo gallery, background on the videos' directors and footage of the producers discussing the videos.
"Being John Malkovich" director Spike Jonze directed the video for "Da Funk" (RealAudio excerpt), which features a cryptic character known as Charles the Dog Boy. The clip was nominated for a Grammy and an MTV Video Music Award. The other videos on "D.A.F.T." are Michel Gondry's "Around The World," Roman Coppola's "Revolution 909" and Seb Janiak's "Burnin'."
The DVD also features the innovative use of the disc's flipside, where viewers can select different angles from which to watch Daft Punk at a Los Angeles performance.
According to the duo's label, Virgin Records, Daft Punk are currently in the studio recording their second album, which is due out late this year.
