Daft Punk will appear on The Colbert Report next week as part of the show's "Colbchella" concert series, according to MTV. The electronic duo will apparently perform, marking their first TV appearance since they released Random Access Memories in May.

Colbert teased the appearance earlier this week when he showed up on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, dancing his way over to Fallon's desk while "Get Lucky" played over the PA. "I don't know what just happened," Fallon said when it was over.

Last year's "Colbchella" event, dubbed "RocktAugustFest," featured the Flaming Lips, fun., Santigold, and Grizzly Bear. The previous year's iteration, "Rock You Like a Thirst-Icane," included Jack White, Bon Iver, Florence and the Machine and Talib Kweli.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
