Daft Punk will bring their Euro-disco funk to the GRAMMY stage in 2014 with their first live performance in over two years, and their first show supporting their GRAMMY-nominated album Random Access Memories.

Daft Punk are up for four GRAMMYs this year, including Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, and Best Dance/Electronica Album.

Rolling Stone reports that GRAMMY producer Ken Ehrlich says that the show plans to deliver “a collaborative and celebratory stage performance that honors their multi-nominated music.” The helmeted electronic pioneers previously performed at the GRAMMYs in 2008, behind Kanye West doing his then hit single, “Stronger”, which sampled Daft Punk.

The GRAMMY team was was excited about the idea of the duo returning.  He said, “We learned that because they had such a good experience with us when they appeared with Kanye in 2008, they were happy to discuss a performance on this year’s show.”

“Conversations took place over a period of a couple of months,” Ehrlich continued, “and finally they agreed to be a part of this year’s telecast. Details of the performance are still being worked out, but the idea of having the exclusive television performance by this iconic band is something we’re very, very excited about.”

The 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards air January 26 at 8 p.m. EST,  on CBS.
