Four hours ago, a user named "LordLordLord" posted this track on the forum KanyeToThe, with the song's title and credits suggesting that it was a previously-unreleased collaboration between Jay Z and Daft Punk. Pitchfork has since confirmed that "it is, in fact, real," but did not cite a source. Whatever it is and wherever it's from, "Computerized" is available to stream above.
As Noisey points out, the instrumental that comprises the majority of "Computerized" is lifted from the song "The Song of Flynn" from Daft Punk's Tron: Legacy soundtrack, but that doesn't necessarily rule out this track as "real." The kicker is Jay Z, whose lyrics on "Computerized" haven't popped up anywhere else before. Even still, his numerous outdated references ("iTouch" "Blackberry" "Serena [Williams]") might be telltale signs of this song's date of origin. Noisey's Drew Millard hypothesizes that it might be a scrapped product of the Blueprint 3 recording sessions, which happened before Tron: Legacy was released, and eventually yielded an album bearing a significant electronic influence.
Daft Punk & Jay Z "Computerized" lyrics:
[Hook: Daft Punk]
Everyone will be
She says I'm cold
Only time I'm comfortable kissing is sending X and O's
I sent a message back to dispute this fact, but this I know
I hope to find my love like we used to before dial-up
What ever happened to our phone sex?
Right now, can't think of anything we don't text
I broke her heart on the email
I'm so cold, Imma just spare y'all the details
I can't even tell y'all what's real
I got an iTouch, but I can't feel
[Bridge: Daft Punk]
Passed up the world now into the future x16
Start mackin' on my Blackberry
She got jealous I was tappin' on my Blackberry
So she didn't keep a Touch
And I can't tell the difference, we ain't see each other much
Aside from some late night text-es
A couple O's, a few X's
My current feel just like my exes
Different characters, same letters
Red light another message
Spillin' her heart out, what a mess this is
P.S. this is B.S.
I can't even spell it out, am I that un-affectionate?
I don't know how I feel
Somebody tell me what's real
[Bridge: Daft Punk]
She said it got better and worser
And it's supposed to be vice versa
I don't know, I kind of like this hurt stuff
We used to see tears when we hurt stuff
I guess it got faster but colder
Biatch with Versace comes over
Yeah, that's better than not seeing her
I'm so glad I'm serving her like Serena
She can YouTube any arena
And we close no matter how many mouths between us
I told her 'Welcome to the future'
That's just how it is, I'm a user
