Looks like Daft Punk is doing a few things they swore they’d never do (and we’re reaping the benefits!). First on the list of firsts, Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter have officially stated they will be releasing remixes of Random Access Memories. Maybe it’s them giving into a whim or maybe they just want to be sure to claim what’s theirs with all the amateur remixes being uploaded to Youtube since the album dropped. Either way, This Is Fake DIY points out that Daft Punk’s 10 minute and 31 second remix of “Get Lucky” is all set for a July 15 release. Looks like Amazon already has your vinyl preorders covered.
And speaking of having things covered, have you seen this photo yet? Yep, the cat’s out of the bag. Under the helmets the guys look like two middle-aged French men. Now you can say “I knew it” with confidence and do a double-take at the fact that in the photo they’re playing champagne beer pong.
And if you just can’t wait for that 10-minute remix, here’s a 10 hour loop of “Get Lucky” on Youtube. You can listen for almost half a day to what might be the first song you ever wouldn’t mind listening to for almost half a day.
