A reissue of Daft Punk’s ‘Random Access Memories’ for its 10th anniversary will include unheard music from the iconic duo.
Thomas Bangalter, one half of the famous duo Daft Punk, has declared that an anniversary reissue of their prior album, Random Access Memories, will include unheard tunes.
This special edition, to be released via Columbia Records in May, contains songs that were initially unheard demos and outtakes from the album’s original launch back in 2013.
Paris natives Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo released their final album as a duo before they declared an end to Daft Punk in an 8-minute video titled ‘Epilogue’ in February 2021. Both musicians had announced their solo projects before this.
Daft Punk’s ‘Random Access Memories’ was awarded five GRAMMYs, and the single ‘Get Lucky’, featuring Pharrell Williams, stayed at the top of the UK charts for four weeks, boasting more than a billion streams.
Contributors to the album included Nile Rodgers, Giorgio Moroder, Todd Edwards, and Paul Williams.
This recording, done with analogue equipment rather than digital, took place over a few years and will now be made available with an extra 35 minutes of never-before-heard audio across nine tracks.
