Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter Previews New Solo LP With Orchestral Song

“L’Accouchement” will appear on Mythologies out on April 7

Thomas Bangalter — one half of the duo Daft Punk, who announced their split in 2021 — has released the first track, “L’Accouchement” from Mythologies, his upcoming debut solo album. It arrives on April 7 via Erato/Warner Classics.

Bangalter’s orchestral composition — along with the rest of Mythologies — is performed by the Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine under the direction of conductor Romain Dumas.


The work was initially commissioned by choreographer Angelin Preljocaj for a ballet for which the album is named. According to a statement, the project began in 2019 when Preljocaj asked Bangalter to write the music for a new work commemorating several years of collaboration with the Opéra National de Bordeaux. The piece was intended for 20 dancers — 10 from the Opéra National de Bordeaux’s ballet company and 10 others from Preljocaj’s own company —alongside the house’s resident orchestra.
