Yes, you read that headline correctly; Daft Punk — the enigmatic Parisan duo — decided to remix their own hit “Get Lucky” featuring Pharrell and Niles Rodgers.
You can listen to a stream of the 10 minute remix below.
If you want to download the mp3, it may be a little difficult. It’s on Spotify, but isn’t on iTunes yet (if you see it on iTunes, please send a link over to me at email@example.com). If you really want to download it, you may be able to find it on torrent sites but do so at your own risk.
Daft Punk’s single from their critically acclaimed and commercially successful album, “Random Access Memories,” has already taken over the radio stations. Spotify announced that “Get Lucky” broke record with the highest number of plays in a single day. However, they didn’t release any figures. The song has reached the number 2 spot in the US Billboard Hot 100.
The album itself has done incredibly well in the US, with 339,000 copies sold in the first week, the second largest of the year (behind Justin Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience”). “Random Access Memories” was Daft Punk’s first number one album ever.
