Daft Punk have revealed that they are working on a remix of their 'Get Lucky' single and hope to release it next month.

The French duo, who have spent the past four weeks at Number One with the lead single from their album 'Random Access Memories', revealed in an interview with Radio 1's Pete Tong that they are remixing a number of songs from the album themselves with the 'Get Lucky' remix due in June.

"We're working on some mixes ourselves," Thomas Bangalter told Tong. "So, yes, there will probably be Daft Punk mixes of Daft Punk. Usually, we never mix ourselves, that's something we feel we're interested in doing this time. The first track we're remixing is 'Get Lucky'. That will be out by the end of June."

Additionally, speaking to The Sun, Bangalter has said that musicians with long careers stop making interesting music because they are too settled. "We don’t talk about our private lives because they’re private, plus the public image is more fun and entertaining anyway. Usually the 24-hour high-maintenance celebrity lifestyle can disconnect people from reality. And after a band has been making records for 20 years, they’re not doing the most interesting shit because they fall into this bourgeois, successful, settled existence."

Meanwhile, a bonus track from the Japanese version of Daft Punk's new album 'Random Access Memories' has emerged online. The song, titled 'Horizon', is an instrumental and appeared as an extra track on the release of the album in Japan.

Daft Punk are on course for the fastest selling album of 2013 with 'Random Access Memories' as their single 'Get Lucky' becomes the best selling song of the year.

'Random Access Memories' was released on Monday (May 20) and is likely to become the fastest selling album of 2013, according to Official Chart data. As of midnight on Tuesday, May 21, over 104,000 copies of the album had been purchased in the UK. This makes the album just 1,000 copies behind the second fastest selling album of 2013 - Justin Timberlake’s 'The 20/20 Experience'.
