Daft Punk: ‘Get Lucky’ represents “Celebratory spirit” of new album
Daft Punk have revealed that their recent chart-topping (and annoying addicting) single, Get Lucky, gives a taster of the “Celebratory spirit” of their upcoming alum.
After being out of the game for eight years, Daft Punk took the music world (and the charts) by storm last month with their comeback single – Get Lucky, featuring Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers. The single went straight into the UK charts at #1, but only managed to peak at #14 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Speaking to Triple J, an Australian radio station, the French pair said that Get Lucky sums up the spirit of their forthcoming album as a whole.
They said: “Like every song on this record, it was something really organic. They really represent bridging the generations together and [with] what Nile Rodgers represents from somehow the same genre of music in the ‘90s and 2000s, it felt really interesting to connect all these eras together to create the music of the present and possibly the music of the future as well.”
The French duo continued: “Most of the ideas behind this record are ideas of celebration. It turns out to be a very optimistic record with very celebrator and optimistic lyrics, and it’s coming out in a world that is not so optimistic, and which is somehow many cynical and slightly pessimistic.”
Daft Punk’s fourth studio album, Random Access Memories is set to be released on May 20th in the UK and May 21st in the US.
