Daft Punk - Daft Punk have no plans to tour

Daft Punk have no plans to tour 'Random Access Memories'.

The French electronic duo - Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo - are set to release their fourth studio album next week and although their 2013 comeback has already received rave reviews, they don't believe they can bring the record to life on stage.

When asked about the possibility of a tour by BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe, they said: ''We're not interested in touring right now for a few reasons. We have just spent five years working on this record trying to bring life back to the art of recording.''

It seems even their family are keen for them to take their LP around the globe, with manager and unofficial third member Paul Hahn admitting he often gets nagged about the group's plans.

He told Billboard: ''My mum asks me every day if we're going on tour. Everybody does. We have been very inspired to do something in the live performance space, but for us right now we're very concentrated on the launch and getting this music out to people in a way that's positive. We want this album to have a cultural and artistic impact.''

'Get Lucky' - the debut single from 'Random Access Memories' which features Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers - has become a worldwide hit and the duo admit even they have been shocked by the reaction.

They said: ''It's pretty surreal you know, we recorded this record over the last five years and we are pretty disconnected from the rest of the world. We've kind of created this timeless bubble where we invited all these collaborators and artists to work with us. We are pleasantly surprised with how people seem to embrace the music, it's very pleasing and totally unexpected for us as we have not been in the spotlight for a number of years.''
