After teasing the crowd at Coachella with the video for their new single "Get Lucky" the incognito french dance duo have supposedly released the track to the public. However, that isn't true. The music your're rocking out to right now underneath this text is NOT the single. It was apparently pieced together from a collection of audio clips around the internet, among them samples from the 15 second long commercial that aired on SNL Daft Punk has released the first single off their new album, Random Access Memories.
As much as we all wish this was the real single, it was apparently pieced together by this soundcloud user, who utilized clips comprised of the same 90-second loop featuring Pharrell's croon and that Nile Rodgers-aided, "Off the Wall"-era groove. And robots.
The real single is due out of Friday, with the album coming May 21 via Columbia Records imprint Daft Life Limited.
As consequence of sound noted, there has been a humongous media presence for the release of this album, even a bit of tractor trailer marketing going on in Tokyo.
This week Daft Punk actually released a Vine of the tracklist for "Random Access Memories" their album.
