Electronic music duo Daft Punk might be making a rare public appearance on The Colbert Report within the next week.

Host Stephen Colbert appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Monday, coming out to briefly dance with Fallon to Daft Punk's Get Lucky. According to a Colbert Report fansite, the appearance was to promote an appearance by Daft Punk on The Colbert Report next week.

Watch the video of Colbert on Fallon's late night show here:


Daft Punk's appearance on the satirical late night show may have to do with the rumor that they will be releasing their second single in August. Musician Nile Rodgers, who collaborated with the duo on their latest album, Random Access Memories, wrote in an early July blog post that a second single might be released in late August.

Daft Punk Get Action Figures

Discussing an Aug. 19 show he will be performing at, he wrote, "There's going to be me, my band CHIC, and some of the hottest acts and surprises on the planet that day... which happens to be around the time the next Daft Punk single drops (I'm just saying)."

Daft Punk has had a lot of success just from their first single Get Lucky, which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song has been covered by a variety of artists, including Florence Welch, the Jonas Brothers and a dubbing of President Barack Obama reciting the lyrics to the song.

The duo is known for rarely making public appearances, saying that they like to separate "the public side and the private side" in terms of their music and their appearance. The duo's members, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem Christo, are rarely seen outside of their trademark helmets and gloves.

They recently modeled for a photo-shoot for Vogue with 20-year-old model Karlie Kross, also with their headgear and gloves. The photo-shoot can be seen on Vogue's website and is set to appear in the August issue of the magazine.
