Daft Punk - Have Daughter Just Made Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky' Even Better?

The London based folk band Daughter have covered Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky,’ lending the French duo’s record breaking disco track a sultry, mellow number, with Elena’s distinctive laid-back vocals providing a neat counterpoint to Pharrell’s, from the original. The track was broadcast first on Saturday (April 27, 2013), a day before Daft Punk hit the number one spot with the track; hardly a surprise after it reached number there last week, after just 48 hours of being on sale.

Prior to the release of ‘Get Lucky,’ Daft Punk’s highest charting track had been ‘One More Time,’ which reached number two back in 2000. The track broke records on Spotify, too, where it broke the record for the highest number of plays in a single day, in the US and the UK. Previously the record had been held by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis in the US and Bastille in the UK. In the official UK charts this week, Daft Punk knocked Rudimental off the top spot, down to number two, with Justin Bieber and Will.i.am’s collaboration at three.

Meanwhile, Daughter have had a successful few months, as well. After their track ‘Youth’ was used to soundtrack the Tour de France in 2012, their popularity began to snowball. They went on to release their debut album If You Leave on 4AD records in 2013, to great critical acclaim.
