Daft Punk Release ‘Get Lucky’ Feat. Pharrell Williams [Listen]
Daft Punk have finally released their new single ‘Get Lucky,’ featuring uber producer Pharrell Williams on vocals and guitarist Nile Rodgers. The song is the lead track from ‘Random Access Memories,’ due out May 21. After a serious dose of hype and “are they or aren’t they?” leaks, the final product is upon us.
It’s a classy EDM track that effectively separates itself from many of its genre peers. While this French pair have been on a bit of a hiatus — they haven’t dropped an album since 2005, even though they’ve kept busy doing things, like scoring ‘Tron: Legacy’ — the EDM scene has grown by leaps and bounds.
Daft Punk, however, aren’t trying to keep up with the genre’s Joneses. Instead, they’re doing things their way and forging a clear and defined path, offering up a nu-disco, dance-oriented track that is marked by a degree of class and excellence.
It’s an elegant and stylish song with a looped beat that could inspire even the staunchest wallflower to get up and dance.
