... called Wee Waa. Daft Punk's new album will debut at a farm show in the tiny Australian town of Wee Waa known as the "Cotton Capital of Australia". A remote farming town in Australia is set to hit the global stage next month after French electro-pop duo Daft Punk picked it for the global launch of their new album. Wee Waa, with a population of just 1,653 and about 500km northwest of Sydney, will host the official launch of Random Access Memories, Daft Punk's first album in eight years, local officials said. The album will be released on May 21 but it is set to be played for the first time anywhere in the world at an exclusive 4,000-ticket party at the annual Wee Waa agricultural show on May 17. Daft Punk themselves will not be attending, but the Wee Waa Show Society are claiming it as a major coup for the event, where the highlights are usually a pet show and wood-chopping contest.
