Daft Punk officially release 'Get Lucky' on iTunes

Long awaited single can now be downloaded ahead of new album release

Daft Punk officially release 'Get Lucky' on iTunes
A full-length version of Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky' can now be downloaded on iTunes.

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, the official version of the single was finally uploaded at 00:01am this morning (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.
