Could this be the full version of Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky'?

Four minute long version of new track appears on SoundCloud

Could this be the full version of Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky'?
Update: Though the SoundCloud link referenced below has since disappeared, a YouTube clip containing the full song has been added.

A full-length version of Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky' has appeared on SoundCloud that – unlike the many versions posted this week – appears to be the real thing.

A one-minute-long version of the track, featuring Pharrell on vocals and Chic's Nile Rodgers on guitar, debuted on a commercial screened at last weekend's Coachella festival, and then during the latest episode of US TV show Saturday Night Live, broadcast on April 13.

Since then, numerous songs have been posted purporting to be the full version of the track, taken from Daft Punk's hotly anticipated new album 'Random Access Memories'. However, on closer inspection, most seem to be stitched together from the audio available on the advert.

The latest version – posted below – comes from a SoundCloud user in Istanbul and claims to be the 'original radio edit' of the song. Unlike, the others, as Idolator points out, this one has two different verses and a longer vocodered breakdown.

Meanwhile, Amazon listings state that 'Get Lucky' will be released tomorrow. The page for the track lists the official release date as April 19

Pharrell Williams recently revealed that he "met the robots at a Madonna party and they were just like, 'We're doing something'. I said, 'Whatever you guys need, I'll do it. I'll play tambourine.' It feels like the only click track they have is the human heartbeat, and that makes it really interesting because these are robots."

When asked what the ideal scenario for listening to 'Random Access Memories' is, he replied: "In a car, pulled up to the beach with my girl. Just let it play. This music is beyond 3D, it's 4D. You don't need MDMA to enjoy this music."

Williams is one of a number of collaborators Daft Punk have pulled in for 'Random Access Memories', which is released on May 20. Synth pioneer Giorgio Moroder, Todd Edwards, Panda Bear and Chilly Gonzales are set to appear on the LP.
