Daft Punk – TRON: LEGACY R3C0NF1GUR3D Album Coming Soon + Win Tickets to Exclusive Listening Party, Miami 3/11


When the TRON: Legacy movie came out last year, we were beyond excited to be along for the ride, helping to launch the official soundtrack, created by the legendary, pioneering, larger-than-life electro duo Daft Punk. The soundtrack showed a new side of Daft Punk’s music: they gave us a powerful, all-encompassing film score, which was a big leap from their usual dancefloor-shaking tunes.

And now the news we all have been waiting for: the hotly anticipated remix album, TRON: LEGACY R3C0NF1GUR3D will be released by Walt Disney Records on April 5th, including interpretations of the Daft Punk score by artists including Glitch Mob, The Crystal Method, Paul Oakenfold, Moby, Boys Noize, Kaskade, Photek, Pretty Lights and more.

On Friday March 11, Giant Step will host a private event: an exclusive first listen to the TRON: LEGACY R3C0NF1GUR3D album at the Rooftop Pool at Soho Beach House, Miami FL.  There is no RSVP but if you’re feelin’ lucky, enter to win a pair of passes here.

Daft Punk Video: “Derezzed” + Original Soundtrack to Tron Legacy Out Now

The highly anticipated original motion picture score for TRON: Legacy was composed and produced by the iconic and critically acclaimed Grammy® Award-winning French duo Daft Punk. Having grown up with admiration of Disney’s groundbreaking original 1982 film TRON, Daft Punk took on the scoring of the next chapter of the story with extraordinary thought and precision. The duo assembled a symphony of one hundred world class musicians in London and recorded the orchestra at AIR Lyndhurst Studios, Britain’s premier scoring facility. TRON: Legacy marks Daft Punk’s first film score.
