Daft Punk to release unheard music for ‘Random Access Memories’ 10th anniversary reissue
A decade since the duo’s last album, this upcoming reissue includes unheard demos and outtakes
Daft Punk have revealed that the tenth-anniversary reissue of their last album ‘Random Access Memories’ will include never-heard-before music.
Originally released in 2013 through Columbia Records, this anniversary edition will be out in May — and feature album unreleased demos and outtakes.
Made up of the Parisians Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, this was the duo’s last album before they announced the official end of Daft Punk with an 8-minute video titled ‘Epilogue’ in February 2021.

‘Random Access Memories’ won five GRAMMYs and saw the track ‘Get Lucky’ with Pharrell Williams reach number one in the UK charts for four consecutive weeks with it now holding over one billion streams.
Also collaborating with Daft Punk on the album were the likes of Nile Rodgers, Giorgio Moroder, Todd Edwards and Paul Williams.
The “RAM” was recorded over several years using analog equipment rather than digital and now will be now reissued with 35 minutes over unheard audio over nine tracks.
