Daft Punk tease new song 'Give Life To Music' in album trailer

Watch robot duo unboxing 'Random Access Memories' ahead of album release

Daft Punk have previewed new song 'Give Life Back To Music' in a trailer for forthcoming album 'Random Access Memories' - watch the video above, now.

The snippet of the song comes at the end of an advert that shows Daft Punk "unboxing" the album. 'Give Life Back To Music' is the first track on 'Random Access Memories' and is the second song to be heard from the album after the smash hit 'Get Lucky' featuring Pharrell, which cemented its place at Number One in the Official UK Singles Chart this weekend after passing 100,000 sales per week for the third week in a row.

Pharrell Williams recently spoke about his collaboration with Daft Punk and 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."

Last week it was reported that Daft Punk had no plans to perform live around the release of 'Random Access Memories'. They release the album, which also features collaborations with the likes of Julian Casablancas, Chilly Gonzales and Giorgio Moroder, on May 20.
