Daft Punk have confirmed that new songs supposedly from their soundtrack to the forthcoming ‘Tron’ sequel are fakes.
A number of tunes seemingly made by the ‘Da Funk’ hitmakers for ‘Tron: Legacy’ surfaced online last week to the excitement of fans.
But a spokesperson for the duo said that the recordings are actually phoney.
Disney, the studio behind ‘Tron: Legacy,’ previously pulled actual leaked music from the album posted by Seattle radio station The End.
The film, starring Michael Sheen, Olivia Wilde and Jeff Bridges, is due out on Dec. 17 in the US, with the soundtrack due for release around the same time.
It’s the sequel to the groundbreaking 1982 movie and opens on Boxing Day in the UK.
Daft Punk’s soundtrack to the movie, meanwhile, will be the French duo’s first studio album since 2005’s ‘Human After All.’
