What You Missed In Music: Daft Punk, Stormzy Album Details & Download 2017
Catch up on the music stories you missed this week right HERE...
Daft Punk are making their comeback at this year’s Grammy Awards
Daft Punk will be making their live return at the Grammy Awards 2017, performing ‘Starboy’ with The Weeknd. This will be the first time music’s most famous robots have performed live in three years. The last time? When they played at – yep, you guesed it – the Grammy Awards.
Pulling in huge names this year is more important for the awards show than ever. Kanye West and Drake will not be attending, while Frank Ocean did not even make his latest work eligible for the Grammys.
Also performing at the ceremony will be Anderson .Paak, A Tribe Called Quest, and Dave Grohl, who will combine together to form a hip-hop-orientated super group. (Yes, that’s right, you read the words ‘Dave Grohl’ and ‘hip-hop-orientated super group in the same sentence. The world has gone bloody mad.) Maren Morris and Alicia Keys will also play together.
Stormzy shares debut album details
Returning to social media for the first time since September, Michael Omari – better known as Stormzy – has released new details on his upcoming album.
Stormzy confirmed that Kehlani (who released her debut last week), Raleigh Ritchie and Wretch 32 will all appear on the album – currently being referred to as GSAP – which may be dropping on February 24.

Meanwhile, Stormzy has been nominated for Best Male at the BRIT Awards 2017.
