A new track from Daft Punk – one of the acts most speculated about on blogs – is coming out next month it emerged this week, as part of Scottish label Soma Records’ 20th Anniversary Compilation CD.

The track is called Drive, and was discovered in a pile of 17-year old DATs at the label’s offices – it was meant to be part of their first release with them but was replaced by Da Funk – the track which began dance fans love affair with the two Frenchmen.
