Daft Punk Remix Franz Ferdinand – Stream

On top of the two tracks we premiered earlier in the week, we wanted to give you another taste of the Franz Ferdinand CD that’s currently free on the front of NME. This time round, it’s metallic maestros Daft Punk remixing ‘Take Me Out’. Here’s Alex Kapranos on what it felt like to hear the new version:

“I always love getting a remix back because I’m fascinated by what people do with a song. Sometimes you get something back and it’s completely unrecognisable, and sometimes you get it back like this! It’s pretty much identical! They beefed up the bottom end and a couple of sections were extended, but I guess it was a bit of a nod from the Daft Punk guys to say: “Ach, you got it more or less right.””
