Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter Shares New Song “Le Minoutaure”: Listen

Taken from his orchestral composition Mythologies

Thomas Bangalter, formerly half of Daft Punk, has shared a new movement from Mythologies, his score to a ballet of the same name. Listen to the piece, titled “Le Minoutaure,” below.

Ballet Preljocaj premiered the Mythologies ballet last year; the company’s founder, Angelin Preljocaj, served as choreographer and also commissioned Bangalter’s 90-minute score. The Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine performed “Le Minoutaure” and the rest of the score, and recorded it under the musical direction of Romain Dumas. Mythologies, Bangalter’s album, is out on April 7; he shared “L’Accouchement” from the record last month.

Since Daft Punk’s split, the duo has been relatively quiet. These pieces from Bangalter, which comprise his first solo album since 2003’s Outrage, are the first releases from either artist since the breakup, though ephemera from the Homework era was released as part of that album’s 2022 reissue campaign. This week, Daft Punk announced a 10th-anniversary reissue of Random Access Memories.
