Homework is the debut studio album released by French electronic music duo Daft Punk in January 20, 1997. Considered a blend of house, techno, acid, funk and occasionally hip-hop, its success brought worldwide attention to French progressive house music and incited interest in French touch music, as several touch artists gained influence from Homework's style. According to The Village Voice, the album revived house music and broke free from the "Euro[dance] formula".
Critically and commercially acclaimed, Homework has sold over two million copies worldwide and received several gold and platinum certifications. The album featured singles that had significant impact in the French house and global dance music scenes. This includes the critically acclaimed and commercially successful "Around the World" and "Da Funk", which have been named among the best songs of their time.
The duo commented they had produced the series of tracks without an initial plan to release an album. As Thomas Bangalter stated, "It was supposed to be just a load of singles. But we did so many tracks over a period of five months that we realized that we had a good album." The album is included in the book 1001
