EDIT: Turns out it’s just another BS Daft Punk rumor. It was fun while it lasted! Full article.
The Coachella lineups is expected to drop within the next couple of weeks or so; frantically, every music loving soul on the western seaboard will be anxiously skimming the poster for those two magical words, Daft Punk. Until recently, The French duo has been completely off the map, but rumors of a Daft Punk side project have been spreading like mono at a middle school rager. It’s under speculation that they decided to go under the alias ‘The Third Twin,’ to put out an album called ‘Homemade’. If you try to look into them, you’ll be left with nothing but a vague possibility. I was however, able to dig up an interesting Q&A.
Well, the big question is obvious, are you Daft Punk?
(TTT): Actually this question is something that disappoints us greatly, since our inception we have escaped the commercialism, the music never must be confused with the image. Comparisons are meaningless for us. And that the real reason for our project, the comparison between twins does not make sense, so the name The Third Twin.

Another thing I thought was noteworthy was that, at the peak of TRON soundtrack leaks, someone under the username AlexDaft26 posted 11 songs that said they were off the unreleased soundtrack. The artist names were later changed to The Third Twin after Disney said they had nothing to do with the soundtrack. All of this is very interesting, of course.
They definitely have the aesthetic feel…several familiar samples… The Third Twin could possibly be Daft Punk… or perhaps just some kids manipulating free publicity; either way, the album itself really does a lot of good.
