Rumors of a return for Daft Punk started forming back in January, and we finally have the first solid information on the French electronic duo's fourth studio album. It's called Random Access Memories, which suggests that thematically the 13-track record won't deviate too strongly from the group's previous explorations of technology and emotions, and it'll be out on May 21st through Columbia Records.

No tracklist or songs have been made available, short of a brief intro to the new www.randomaccessmemories.com website that also aired as a commercial during Saturday Night Live (above). However, if you're feeling optimistic that the record will mark a return to form following 2005's Human After All — widely considered somewhat of a disappointment — you can pre-order it through iTunes right now.

Thanks, Packman!
