The song has been the talk of the music industry since being teased at Coachella and featured on a commercial during
Saturday Night Live.” Several unofficial and unfinished versions of “Get Lucky” can be found online, but after tomorrow, fans can finally hear the real deal.
Pharrell spoke about meeting Daft Punk at a Madonna party and the collaboration earlier this month. Skateboard P told Daft Punk that he would do just about anything to get on the album, saying, “If you just want me to play a tambourine, I’ll do it.” Eventually, the collaboration went down in Paris and P described the experience as nothing short of euphoric. “You don’t need MDMA for this music, because it’s so incredibly vivid.”
Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories is slated to hit stores May 21.
Many in the hip-hop world began taking notice of the French electronic music duo after its 2001 “Harder Better Faster Stronger” was sampled by Kanye West on his 2007 “Stronger.” In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Daft Punk revealed that they spent time working with Ye on his sixth album. “It was very raw: he was rapping – kind of screaming primally, actually,” they described of his vocals.
