Daft Punk Says New Album Is Supposed To Really Suck

There has been Daft Punk fever since the duo started teasing the release of their new album, "Random Access Memories," which hits stores next Tuesday (May 21st).

GQ caught up with the men behind robot duo, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, to talk about the new album and some other topics. Here are a couple of excerpts:

Bangalter on growing older and still making quality music: "We're making music for twenty years. How many bands and acts do you have that are still making good music after twenty years? It always sucks—almost always, you know?" de Homem-Christo then adds: "So our new album is supposed to really suck."

The topic of sucking came up again later in the piece when they were discussing their influence on electronic dance music, "It's always this thing where we're constantly waiting for something that will come in electronic music that says, 'Daft Punk sucks!' " Bangalter says. "That's actually much more interesting and exciting than someone who is paying homage." Read the full interview and feature here.
