Daft Punk have allowed fans access to their latest record, Random Access Memories,by streaming it online via iTunes.
The album isn’t set to be officially released until May 20, but earlier today the duo previewed a new song, “Give Life Back To Music,” in a trailer.
Business Insider have provided information on how to listen, stating, “Open iTunes, Search for Daft Punk, Click the artist name to go to the artist page. You’ll see the album cover and a button that prompts you to listen to the album for free.”
Daft Punk’s iTunes page proclaims; “Loaded with guest stars and dazzling hooks, Random Access Memories is the long-anticipated return of Daft Punk. For its latest album, the French duo calls on a list of collaborators that’s every bit as unexpected as the music itself.”
This includes Julian Casablancas from The Strokes and Pharrell Williams from NERD. The message then concludes, “For a limited time, you can listen to Random Access Memories for free on your computer or iPad.”
Grooveshark have also apparently made the album available to listeners too, but this isn’t an official stream. However those attempting to hear the record have stated that they’ve experienced problems in their quest.
Daft Punk’s fourth album was preceded by 1997’s Homework, 2001’s Discovery, and 2005’s Human After All.
The first single from Random Access Memories, which is called “Get Lucky,” features the vocal talents of Pharrell and is currently in its third week at the top of the Official UK Singles Chart.
“Get Lucky” has so far sold over 100,000 copies and looks set to remain at the summit of the charts for the foreseeable future.
