Daft Punk: 'Our New Album Is Supposed To Suck'

French duo say they are waiting for another act to make them look bad...

Daft Punk have confessed they are waiting for people to tell them they "suck".

The French producers - who are currently No.1 in the UK singles chart with Pharrell Williams collaboration Get Lucky - have told GQ magazine they are waiting for another electronic act to make them look bad.

Thomas Bangalter explained to the publication: "It's always this thing where we're constantly waiting for something that will come in electronic music that says, 'Daft Punk sucks!'

"That's actually much more interesting and exciting than someone who is paying homage. In Scream 2, they have this discussion about how sequels always suck.

"The thing we can ask ourselves at some point is like: We're making music for 20 years. How many bands and acts do you have that are still making good music after 20 years? It always sucks - almost always, you know?"

Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo concluded: "So our new album is supposed to really suck."

Daft Punk's new LP Random Access Memories will be released in the UK on May 20.
