In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of Daft Punk‘s iconic album ‘Random Access Memories’, the legendary duo has been sharing exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes footage featuring key contributors to the project. In the most recent episode of ‘Memory Tapes’, Pharrell Williams takes a nostalgic journey through the creation of ‘Get Lucky’.
This archival footage captures the moment Pharrell Williams first listened to the finished versions of ‘Get Lucky’ and ‘Lose Yourself to Dance’. Surprisingly, Pharrell initially believed he was recording demo vocals for someone else to recreate.
During the exclusive interview, the acclaimed artist from The Neptunes also shares his experience of meeting Daft Punk‘s manager and Ed Banger Records owner, Busy P. Additionally, he delves into his work on the remix of Daft Punk‘s ‘Harder Better Stronger’ in 2001, providing a fascinating insight into the collaborative spirit behind the music.
The ‘Memory Tapes’ series includes engaging interviews with other notable contributors such as Chilly Gonzales, Todd Edwards, DJ Falcon, and Nile Rodgers. These conversations were held at Henson Studios in Los Angeles and Gang Studios in Paris, the very places where Daft Punk dedicated countless hours to crafting ‘Random Access Memories’.
Excitingly, Daft Punk has also unveiled a ‘Drumless Edition’ of the album, set for release on vinyl and across all major digital streaming platforms on November 17. Fans can already enjoy the single ‘Within’ from this upcoming edition.
