So now that the hysteria surrounding Daft Punk’s new album has died down a bit we thought we’d share a couple of edits/remixes that have come our way which aren’t completely terrible.

Trying to review Daft Punk’s new album was never going to be easy, hell, an album that weighs in at 75 minutes long, with a list of collaborators that sounds like the future rock’n'roll hall of fame, was always going to be difficult to tie down in under 500 words. Then there’s the hype; rumours of upwards of 30 million dollars has been spent on promoting the 4th studio album, ‘Random Access Memories’, from French duo Daft Punk.
As we predicted Daft Punk’s album is now streaming on iTunes. *Sorry we don’t have time to write more we’re obviously listening to it now.*
Well we’re almost there. In what feels like a lifetime of waiting Daft Punk’s new album will be out this time next week. Can’t wait until then? Well, the Robot’s 4th studio album, ‘Random Access Memories’, will be streamed via iTunes before the album’s official release next week.
So Daft Punk have spoken about their new album with Radio 1′s Pete Tong, and we’ve got a few juicy details to share with you: firstly there won’t be any proper videos for the future singles, apparently the duo don’t want to cloud the music with too many visuals. Secondly, when pressed about remixes, the Robot’s said they’re considering remixing themselves, which would be a first for the duo. The thought of a Daft Punk remixes version of the album could well be the best news we’ve heard all year.
Well some cheeky chappy has seemingly managed to record a snippet of Giorgio Moroder’s collaboration with Daft Punk presumably at one of Colombia Records’ listening parties, be warned, though, the track is only a couple of minutes long (not the full 9 minutes) and has been captured is really low quality. Check it out before it’s inevitably removed.
Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lcuky’ has been the biggest hit of the Robot’s long and illustrious career, dispelling the myth that artists tend to make their best music at the beginning of their career.
The scourge of edits of Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’ is beginning to reach fever-pitch but thankfully Drop Out Orchestra, who actually have some appreciable talent, have made a tasteful re-edit.
So it would appear Wednesday’s leak of Daft Punk’s new single, ‘Get Lucky’, was in fact the real deal and is now available to purchase from iTunes. The track length matches the leak and while it’s not available in the UK we’re 100% certain they’re the same.
Pitchfork and MTV have been told by Columbia Records that Daft Punk’s new single, ‘Get Lucky’ featuring Nile Rodgers and Pharrell Williams, will go on sale digitally at 12.01am EST, which is 5am UK time by our reckoning.
So it would appear that the radio edit of Daft Punk’s new single ‘Get Lucky’ has found its way onto the wilds of the internet. So check it out below before Daft’s lawyers come knocking.
Well today’s single release didn’t happen. Feel free to abuse Fun Radio and LifeLikfe for that. Fun Radio did actually play what they thought was the full track, but unfortunately they seem to have gotten trolled and played a crappy internet edit which stitched the various clips together, which also had a horrific string section over-the-top towards the end.
*update* Rolling Stone has just gone live with a world exclusive interview with Daft Punk where the duo talk about the secrets of the album and how the collaborations came about.
Well we don’t like to brag but we called it and it actually happened. Daft Punk’s new single ‘Get Lucky’ got a 2 minute preview at Coachella last night to a rather uninterested crowd, from the sounds of it.
Daft Punk’s new single to be unveiled next week? Something rumoured to be happening at Coachella this weekend? A new video teased in the last few frames of Nile’s interview? A new track to be aired on French Radio next week?
Gather round children. There once was a man in New York called Todd Edwards, who has been making garage-y infused house for around 20 years, and it just so happens it sounds a lot like Disclosure, in fact, we probably wouldn’t have Disclosure if it wasn’t for Todd.
As you’ve probably noticed the Daft Punk hype machine is getting a bit ridiculous, today we had Konbini claiming, for whatever reason, they’d been sent a leaked version of the album by an anonymous source – which on the face of it looks like an attempt at SEO whoring.
A new SNL clip from Daft Punk’s new album, ‘Random Access Memories’, dropped last night and once again revealed just a tiny slice of presumably a new single from the now named album, which is out May 21.
Good news folks Daft Punk’s long-awaited fourth studio album has a confirmed release date of May 21 and has finally been given it’s full name: ‘Random Access Memories’.
Well well well, Daft Punk made a surprise return this weekend as a teaser of presumably their new single was aired on Saturday Night Live, it’s only 15 seconds, but from what we’ve heard this is almost certainly the opening bars to their new single with Nile Rodgers.
