A book about Daft Punk's 2001 album Discovery is to be published this September.

Written by music journalist and author Ben Cardew, who's previously contributed work to tQ, Daft Punk's Discovery: The Future Unfurled includes more than 25 interviews, as well as past unreleased interview material with the French duo themselves.

The book was originally finished before the duo announced their split earlier this year, and was thus re-drafted by Cardew to reflect the end of the project. It will be available in paperback and as an e-book.

"Daft Punk's Discovery is a record that looked into the future and liked what it saw," reads the book's blurb. "An album that predicted the electronic music explosion, YouTube and the end of privacy, while dragging soft rock back into vogue."

Velocity Press will publish Daft Punk's Discovery: The Future Unfurled in September.
