Last night at Coachella, festival goers were treated to a two-minute video teaser of the new Daft Punk single ‘Get Lucky‘ which features Pharrell and Nile Rodgers! I’ve been eager to hear more of this since playing out that commercial, and I’m certainly not disappointed. This track sounds entirely too damn funky!
The clip also served to confirm that ‘Random Access Memories‘ will contain star-studded collaborations with Julian Casablancas, Animal Collective’s Panda Bear, Giorgio Moroder, Chilly Gonzales, DJ Falcon and Todd Edwards.
A few days ago, Daft Punk released the third installment of their The Collaborators video series, it features the legendary Nile Rodgers. Watch as he discusses his past collaborations and his experience working with Daft Punk. I love watching him jam out to one of their collaborations on his headphones!

The pairing of these amazing musicians is already blowing my mind, can’t wait to hear the music!
The Hood Internet have once again done the unexpected and pulled it off expertly! This time they’ve mashed up Justin Timberlake’s latest single Suit & Tie and the Daft Punk teaser which was on the commercial during SNL and has everyone freaking out. It just works so unbelievably well!
