Daft Punk announce split and release Epilogue farewell video - Why did Daft Punk split?

DAFT PUNK have announced a shock split after 28 years together. The Get Lucky French duo, who never show their faces, released an eight-minute farewell video called Epilogue.

The tracks Touch and Get Lucky both feature on Daft Punk's fourth and final album, Random Access Memories.

Released in 2013, it was their final album together and their greatest commercial success.

Random Access Memories topped the charts in the UK, US and across Europe and won the 2014 Grammy Award for Best Album. Get Lucky also took the award for Best Record, with Pharell and Nile Rodgers.

Since then, the duo has released very little new material, most notably working on two tracks for The Weeknd's 2016 album Starboy.
