During the latter half of Saturday Night Live a few weeks ago, viewers were teased with a fifteen-second spot for a new Daft Punk record. The ambiguous advert, which featured the band logo sandwiched between a twin-faced space helmet, caused a seismic response from all corners of the internet. A brilliant way to announce an album.

The street campaign is also underway, with bills placed on all the requisite plywood sheds. And now…the billboard above Bowery and Great Jones.

Meanwhile, Stereogum reported over the weekend that the heretofore-unidentified album is dubbed Random Access Memories, and is now available for preorder via iTunes. The thirteen-song set drops on May 21. Song titles are not known. Don’t bother trying to preview, as it’s locked.
