Random Access Memories by Daft Punk coming 21st of May.

No you're not dreaming, this is very real. After years of speculation and waiting, some real information has been released regarding their 4th studio album with name, tracklist -names if you'd like-, cover and release date.

While I am bit sad to see their iconic logo gone, and as ironic as it is to have their mask for fame and stardom become the very image of their fame and stardom, it's refreshing to see something new and unexpected. Less is more, or is this just dull? Thoughts?

Also, here's that segment featured on SNL, looped infinitely to keep you preoccupied until the 20th.
And a countdown if you're feeling a bit masochistic.

Update: If you don't already know, a new SNL ad was put up yesterday. 10 Minute Loop. This one is even better.

Update 2: Get Lucky teaser.

Check out the collaborators videos too!

Rolling Stones interview.

Update 3: Tracklist named.

Definitely excited for this one. I think it should be interesting to see what effect (if any) recent trends in electronic music have on Daft Punk. Hopefully this album has as much groove as Human After All did.

This piques my interest, yes. Hopefully there should be some good content.

Funny thing, Daft Punk posted that double faced helmet cover as a facebook update, but when I saw it the first time I ignored it because I thought it was fan art or something.

More Daft Punk is always a means for celebrating.

20th of may you say? Now I know what i'm getting for my birthday!

More Daft Punk = More good in this world.

Well my day has just been made, thanks for that. =)
Also that looped segment is going to be the background noise for my whole day. XD

My happiness knows no bounds. Seriously, I've really been waiting for this. Daft Punk haven't yet disappointed me.

Ah, the loop has already vanquished my fear for another "human after all"
Aside from a few tracks, i did not like that album as much, i did the previous.

That said, this loop reminds me of Homework and Discovery.
Which is good.
The world could use some more Daft Punk.

Fuck YEAH! More Daft Punk makes me a happy man, I think I'ma listen to that loop till my ears fall off... or until the new album is released so that I may acquire it, whichever happens first.

As if the 20th of May couldn't get even more awesome for me. I leave for the UK to visit my boyfriend and Daft Punk finally releases a new album. All on the same day...

Yeah, this May is gonna rock for sure.

This makes me very happy. Daft Punk will always be the kings of electronica.

Oh hell yes! I'm in love with Daft Punk all over again from listening to that sample from the ablum!
In fact I going to mark it down on my calander on the release day since I'm getting a feeling I would forget the date without a reminder.

Yeah, heard about this yesterday. REALLY excited, fucking love Daft Punk. Love the album name by the way, perfectly phrases Daft Punk's old theme of machines that have humanity.

Now, if you'll excuse me...

F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5.....

Ok, first things first, that name was pretty clever.

I like Daft Punk's stuff, but I'm not into it that much. I'll keep my ears to the ground if it's any good.

I'm going to pre-order the vinyl and the CD so I can have all the editions. The two samples were more than enough to convince me that this is a return to form for Daft Punk.

Also, I think this is the full song. Might be fake, but it definitely does sound legit.

Bumped because things are getting quite active. Thoughts on this teaser?

I'm loving the music and the outfits. It was a bit cheesy but the brilliant sun-set silhouette ending made up for it.

Already pre-ordered my copy ^_^ Can't wait. Daft Punk are such pioneers in electronic music, and they're so recognizable too. "Human After All" was A.W.E.S.O.M.E, so I have high hopes for this.

Yeah I am SO pumped/ excited/ hyped up from listenning to that latest ad! It just sound so Daft Punk! Heck I have been checking Youtube every hours to see if someone had uploaded Get Lucky since I've read the single is suppose to be up this week (I think).

It is indeed supposed to come out sometime this week. I want to listen to it with the album, I'm that kind of guy :P, but I may not be able to resist >.>.

Glad to see another fellow fan of Human After All. It was brilliant for me because it was so different and had conviction in its ideas. Its repetitiveness actually made it more enjoyable for me because I felt like it had reason.

Favourite song/s? Mine would have to be Make Love, Prime Time and Emotion.

Prime Time is great! A little creepy but definitely good. My all time favourite is Robot Rock. It's insane how kickass that track is.

Aaah I love Robot Rock too although it is the one song I end up skipping because it gets a little too repetitive for my tastes >.>. Still a great song.

I like it even more because of this mashup.

I just want to say that mashup is amazing, I'm usually not a fan of mash ups but that just works really well.

Glad to hear you liked it! I implore you to also check out other Daft Punk vs Beastie Boys mashups such as this one and this one. There are a few other good ones as well, including one from the DJ Hero game :P.

Trivia: The Robot Rock mashup got me into Beastie Boys and eventually hip-hop.

After how disappointing I found Human After All I'm really hoping for something special here. Fingers crossed fora tour soon, I last saw them in 2007 (listen to the Alive 2007 album, basically the same set!) and it was intense.

So pumped for this, it sounds a lot more like the masterpiece that was Discovery, which is awesome.

And if anyone is interested there's a series talking with the people who collaborated with Daft Punk of the album, and some of the stuff they say is really cool.

They're both alright, the Robot Rock one is definitely my favourite though. I think a mash up, if done well can be amazing, but it just so rarely is. My favourite by far has to be this:

I just think it sounds like it could be a completely original song.

I guess the Beastie Boys just lend themselves so well to mash ups because their songs use so many different samples anyway. It's cool that you got into hip-hop that way though.

Not May 20th, May 21st. May want to change the title and the opening post.

I've been hearing it's either or from all over the place but so people aren't disappointed, I will change it to 21st.

Ooo nice find, that's quite the mash-up. It definitely could have fooled me for being an original song, which isn't the end and all of mash-ups but still a great achievement.

Yeah they are, to the extent in some live shows they often change the beat between verses which is pretty kickass.

I just think it's cool that two very different songs can be put together and it just sounds completely normal.

A friend showed me this a while ago which is great, but it seems pretty well known so you've probably already heard it.

Why have I discovered this now >.>.

Yeah, it is great when songs fit so perfectly together. That feeling when you discover one that turns out to be pure gold although the songs mashed are contrasting is wonderful. This is also why I absolutely adore sampling in music.

Not a good example of the contrasting idea but I still want to share it.
