Daft Punk released yet another taste of their new album, Random Access Memories, in a commercial that aired during Saturday Night Live's broadcast last night. Building on the previous, mysteriously brief clips of last month, the French duo offered a full minute of the new song, "Get Lucky," with Pharrell Williams singing and Nile Rodgers on guitar. A slightly longer version of the clip made a surprise appearance on the jumbotrons at Coachella on Friday night.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Pharrell said that he spoke with Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo at a party for Madonna, where they told him they were working on a new album. "Whatever you do, call me – I’ll play tambourine on it," Pharrell recalled telling them. "They looked at each other and they were like, We’ll be in touch." Pharrell also sings on another track on the album, "Lose Yourself to Dance." Random Access Memories is due out on May 21st.
