Pioneers of French Touch launch official TikTok account celebrating their ground-breaking career
Launching today Daft Punk have opened their official TikTok account, celebrating a near three-decade career at the cutting edge of dance music globally. For the first time, the TikTok community will be able to use Daft Punk’s incredible full music catalogue in their video creations and enjoy exclusive content from their archives specifically for the channel.
In a first of its kind, TikTok’s Effect House will launch two official Daft Punk filters for fans to use.

Fans can begin using the filters and creating with the full catalogue from Tuesday 18th October with a dedicated Daft Punk playlist launching too.
About Daft Punk
Daft Punk were a French electronic music duo formed in 1993 in Paris by Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo. Widely regarded as one of the most influential acts in dance music history, they achieved huge popularity in the late 1990s. They garnered critical acclaim and commercial success in the years following, combining elements of house music with funk, disco, indie rock and pop.
Daft Punk's influence reached further into the mainstream through collaborations with Pharrell Williams, Kanye West and The Weeknd.
Though they reinvented themselves continually, wherever Daft Punk went, the rest of pop music followed.
Having announced the end of Daft Punk on February 22, 2021, the duo are sharing their music catalogue with both existing fans and introducing their style and sounds to new fans around the world.
