Daft Punk have released their 10th anniversary reissue of final studio album 'Random Access Memories'.
The updated version of the album, which was first announced in February, includes nine bonus tracks, much of them previously unheard demos dating back to the studio sessions for the 2013 album. The unheard material includes early demo versions of album cuts like 'Get Lucky', 'Lose Yourself To Dance', 'Give Life Back To Music' and a "documentary" track, ‘The Writing of Fragments of Time’ featuring Todd Edwards.
Also featured among the bonus content is the track 'Horizon', which previously only appeared on the original Japanese release of the album, and an unreleased demo cut, 'Infinity Repeating', which features vocals from The Strokes' Julian Casablancas. You can watch the video for that below.
That track was created before Daft Punk and Casablancas ultimately recorded 'Instant Crush' together, which made the final cut of the original album. The track, and an accompanying video, was debuted last night as part of a special event at Paris' Pompidou Centre.
Speaking about 'Infinity Repeating', Casablancas said it's "a little stranger and more jazz modern chord-wise than the others on the record. It just cycles up like a pattern – it's a four half-step cycle moving up on repeat.
"I wanted Stevie Wonder to sing it. It somehow has island summer vibes too... it's lovely and bizarre, like a human, and like a human obsessed with infinity and constantly making the same mistakes and movements."
The 'Random Access Memories' 10th anniversary reissue is available to stream in full below.
In April, Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter spoke out about why the duo decided to call time on the project in 2021.
