"Veridis Quo" is the eleventh track from Daft Punk's second studio album, Discovery. The title of the song can be read as 'very disco' which in turn says, 'discovery'.


The song starts with a simple sound that lasts the whole song. 45 seconds into the song, a 4-beat starts. It fades out at 2:57 and restarts at 3:18.

Meaning of the nameEdit

"Veridis quo" is a bit of clever wordplay on the Latin phrase "Quo vadis?", literally, "Whither goest thou?" or "Where are you going?". The greater meaning of the phrase is, "To what purpose?" or, "To what end are you doing this?" There is Christian usage of this phrase, asked of Jesus. In Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem the phrase "Veridis Quo" appears as the title of a book during the track of the same name. The "Quo vadis?" meaning would seem to correspond very well to this. This also can mean "Very Disco", which can also be switched to discovery. "Very Disco", switching and joining words, results "Discovery", the name of the album.
