Daft Punk - 'Get Lucky' Gets Lucky As Daft Punk Break Spotify Record

Daft Punk’s highly awaited return has been a successful one, with their latest track ‘Get Lucky'; doing just that, in terms of Spotify plays. The online music streaming service have announced that the track broke the record for the highest number of plays in a day, both in the US and the UK. They would not, however, release the actual totals, so we’re left guessing as to the true scale of their popularity amongst the service’s users. In the US, the record was previously held by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ ‘Thrift Shop’ and in the UK, Bastille’s song ‘Pompeii’ had taken the crown.

‘Get Lucky’ is the first song to be officially released from the French duo’s forthcoming album Random Access Memories – their first studio album in seven years, though they have released the Tron soundtrack and a live album in that time. It not only features superstar rapper and producer Pharrell Williams on vocals but also a guitar contribution from Chic legend Nile Rogers. Other collaborators on the album include electronic music pioneer Giorgio Moroder, Julian Casablancas of The Strokes, Todd Edwards and Panda Bear.

Random Access Memories is scheduled for release on May 21. The response to the single has been overwhelmingly positive, as reflected in the track’s popularity on Spotify’s online streaming service.
