Daft Punk – Random Access Memories
Scheduled Release: 17 May 2013 (Australia), 20 May 2013 (UK) and 21 May 2013 (US)
Random Access Memories is the highly anticipated fourth studio album by French electro DJs Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, aka Daft Punk. Explaining the reasoning behind the album’s title name, Bangalter said “We were drawing a parallel between the brain and the hard drive – the random way that memories are stored.” For this album, the duo wanted to work extensively with live musicians while staying true to their unique sound we’ve all grown so fond of. The 13 track album will include collaborations with various artists including Pharrell Williams (N.E.R.D), Panda Bear (Animal Collective) & Julian Casablancas (The Strokes). Let us take this time to thank Daft Punk for bringing funk back!
