Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories anniversary reissue campaign continues with the latest in the robots’ “Memory Tapes” documentary series, which features interviews with their many collaborators. Pharrell Williams is the latest to sit down and discuss working with Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo. In addition to revealing that he thought he was laying down demo vocals to be re-recorded by someone else, the new episode includes archival footage of Williams hearing the completed versions of “Get Lucky” and “Lose Yourself to Dance” for the first time. Watch it happen below.
Daft Punk unexpectedly split up in 2021. Since then, Bangalter has shared his solo work Mythologies, while de Homem-Christo collaborated with Travis Scott on Utopia. An entirely drumless version of Random Access Memories on November 17.
