So turns out Daft Punk is feeling awfully nice and is streaming their upcoming album out May 21 on iTunes. Who knows for how long, but listen to it as soon as possible! As I am still stuck at work, I will have to wait until I get home until I get a chance. Knowing my luck, it’ll be down by then.
Just open their artist page in iTunes, click that “View in iTunes” button and it’ll lead you to preview the album for free!
It’s out! The real thing. Daft Punk‘s newest single Get Lucky officially marks their return to the real world. Soon to be followed by their upcoming album Random Access memories due for May 20, or if you’re lucky enough to be in Australia or do shady business, May 17. I’m also pretty excited for their 7-yearly Alive tour which I hope they will be coming to Toronto. I’m hoping for a better venue than last time’s Arrow Hall in Mississauga, but I guess you have to make sacrifices when you have that many people for a single concert.
Comments on the track itself? I’m really liking it, Pharrell is a great match for Daft Punk. However, there was a bit more Pharrell than I was expecting. I think this was because I listened to the TheBeatmaniac remix “we are rough on Mexican monkeys” robotic voice clip ripped from the SNL commercials on repeat for like a week straight. This is a radio edit though, so I am hoping for a full or extended version of the track with a bit more Daft Punk essence in it. This is kind of a perfect first single for the album. Get it from iTunes.
