Daft Punk social media posts spark reunion rumors, stirs fan base

It was a year ago, February 22nd exactly, when the electronic music duo announced the split up. Daft Punk is one of the most known influential dance and electronic bands of all time that gave birth to songs like ‘Around the World’, ‘Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger’, ‘Get Lucky’, ‘One More Time’ to name a few.

After 28 years, the French band called it quits, followed by the release of an eight-minute-long video showing the pair walking in the desert with the infamous futuristic helmets.

But just this week, Daft Punk seems to be back after the two relaunched their social media accounts.
