SummersRadio™ New Music! Daft Punk!

SummersRadio™ New Music! Daft Punk featuring Pharrell Williams & Nile Rodgers - 'Get Lucky' (Official Radio Edit)

Daft Punk have just officially released their new single on iTunes today! Between the release of their first song teaser played on Saturday Night Live on March 2nd and today the internet has been flooded with loops and home made edits of what the full track might sound like. You can revisit the first clip and my story of meeting the band here:

So if you're on the net a lot you'll know that it's been a brilliant marketing campaign but it was getting rather annoying - there's been so much hype and yet no one really had anything to say about the song itself . On the other hand why comment until you've heard the real thing? I love Daft Punk. However I'm not a fan of Pharrell's vocals - they turned me off the song to some degree from the start - although there's no denying the classic sound of Nile Rodgers' funky guitar work.

I'm clearly divided on the song's appeal - if they wanted to make a song that sounds as good as his recordings did with Chic and Sister Sledge, then they succeeded. The thing is that as perfect as that sound is, it just doesn't feel as fresh in 2013 as it did back in the day.

So while I anxiously await the release of some quality remixes (I reckon the internet will be flooded with a new wave of them tomorrow) sans Pharrell (the vocoder bits are cool though) we have here the official final proper radio edit as released on iTunes today... Enjoy!
