Daft Punk's fourth album is expected to be released in Spring 2013, according to an interview conducted with Chilly Gonzales in late September of 2012, a musician who has worked with the band in the past. 
Although the band hasn't yet officially announced the album, it has been revealed in interviews that the project is in progress. Many clues have been given since the Tron: Legacy Soundtrack. Artists such as Panda Bear, Paul Williams, Chilly Gonzales, and most recently Nile Rodgers had confirmed their collaborations on the current studio project. The album has been in the works since 2010. 
Paul Williams has stated that he is working with Daft Punk in two separate interviews.
This is big news to many fans, as their previous studio album Human After All was released in 2005. It has been speculated that the next album could contain elements of Soul and R&B, as suggested by Rodgers. Others speculate that due to collaborations with artists from the 1970s and 1980s, the album may also have a Discovery-like sound.
Chilly Gonzales was later confirmed to have collaborated with the band on the project, while it has been said that Panda Bear has as well.
In May 2012, in an interview with the Italian artist Giorgio Moroder he said he was working with Daft Punk in Paris. Moroder stated:
"Thomas wanted me to talk about my life, and I said 'And what are you going to do with it?', and he [Bangalter] said 'Oh you just talk and we are going to snip it in the stuff'. So I came to Paris in the studio and he had three microphones to record me, they were different microphones, and I said 'Why do you have three? Is not one enough?' and then he said 'This one in here -a very old microphone of the '60-, if you talk about your life around the '60, this is how the microphone is going to sound. Then, if your going to talk about the '70, you have the second microphone'. And then I asked the sound engineer, 'Is anybody ever, be able to distinguish the different sounds?', he said 'No', then I replied 'Then why?' which he responded 'Well, he knows the differences.'"
2009 - September 9, 1999 "accident".
Many speculated that Daft Punk would probably release their new album on Sep. 9, 2009 since Thomas Bangalter once commented that they had an accident with their sampler on "Sep. 9, 1999 at 9:09 am". This is also seen on their song title Revolution 909. Some rumors have shown on the Electroma's Opening Night in Paris, that Daft Punk will start recording of the album after their Alive 2007 tour. Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo simply commented it with a "hushhhh".
2008 - Tron: Legacy misleading to 4th album
On May 28, 2008, Busy P, former manager of Daft Punk, in an interview with Australian music magazine In The Mix, revealed that Daft Punk were currently in the studio. He later took back the remark, however, stating that he had been mistranslated..
2011 - Website update
Another date that was speculated was November 11, 2011. Thus nothing was revealed, the home page of Daft Punk website was updated with nothing but the Daft Punk logo in red, most rarely, with a TM aside. Also, the daftalive.com website was inaccessible from January to July 2012.
2012 - "Renoma Street" hoax
The most recent speculation was about "single" from the acclaimed album would be released on the 21st of July. The single would supposedly be released under the name of "Renoma Street". These rumors raised from an issue of "Tsugi", A French magazine, where "Daft Punk - Renoma Street" appeared in a list of songs. The suppossed song was later revealed to be "a little joke" from the editors, disappointing many fans, and ending a hype. The magazine later received bad reception after making the "joke".
2012- Website under construction
When going on to daftpunk.com from November 11 to 13, 2012, you would receive a banner stating the website is under construction. The website has since been returned to view, with a look identical to the 2011 update.
Since the Alive 2007, many speculations about Daft Punk collaborating with other artist were spreaded. Many of them include:
