He made his name as one half of Daft Punk - one of the most celebrated dance and electronic music groups of all time - in the most ingenious way, ensuring that he could reap the accolades while retaining his anonymity.
Now, however, with Daft Punk saying goodbye to fans in 2021, Thomas Bangalter has lifted his helmet to reveal what he looks like to fans after all these years.
Well... sort of.
The 48-year-old Bangalter will release his new solo album 'Mythologies' on April 7th, and has given fans a glimpse of what he looks like now - at least in illustrated form:
'Mythologies' is a 90-minute score that was originally commissioned by choreographer Angelin Preljocaj for the ballet of the same name. It made its live debut last year.
Bangalter had previously composed the score to films like 'Irreversible' as well as other film projects, and of course, was a member of house trio Stardust, who released 'Music Sounds Better with You' in 1998.
His former bandmate Guy-Manuel de Homem Christo has not released any material since Daft Punk's 2021 split.
