Ever since Daft Punk announced a few months back that they were releasing a new album, there have been more false leaks of their first official single off of said album than a breaking news story from CNN (got em). And to be honest, with all the praise all the fake releases were getting from every reviewer imaginable, I feel as though Daft Punk could pretty much just rip a bunch of farts into their synthesizers, lay some robot voices over top of it and bloggers everywhere would cream in their pants. Don't get me wrong, I'm just as excited as the next guy to hear some new DP, but let's not overreact here. Apparently though, this radio edit of "Get Lucky" is the official version that will appear on the new album and not yet another fake, although it seems as though there is still no official word from the band confirming this. Definitely has a funky vibe to it and Pharrell does his part in making this one danceable, but part of me kind of hopes this one is just an incomplete or shortened version of the one that will appear on the album. Check it out for yourself and weigh in your thoughts. Random Access Memories is due out May 21st...
This one should be titled "Get Funky", amirite?
