Daft Punk song

35 minutes of studio scraps

For the tenth anniversary of the album Random Access memories, the band – separated since 2021 – unveils Thursday in world preview Infinity Repeating, one of the nine tracks lying on tape in 2013 and never broadcast.
Their fourth and final studio album, Random access memories (2013), placed Daft Punk at the top of the charts with the mega-hit Get lucky (carried by the voice of Pharrell Williams and the guitar of Neil Rodgers).
In Infinity repeating, we can hear the singer Julian Casablancas and The Voidz (parallel project to his other group, The Strokes), according to the press release from the Center Pompidou. It’s a “demo”, the first draft of a piece originally composed for Random Access Memories. The title is one of nine tracks laid on tape in 2013 and never released – 35 minutes of studio scraps, demos, preparatory work – filling the increased reissue for the 10th anniversary of the album which will be released on Friday.

Three title discovery experiences

Infinity repeating, an unreleased track from Daft Punk, will be unveiled in world preview this Thursday at 6:30 p.m. (Paris time, 4:30 p.m. GMT) at the Parisian museum of the Center Pompidou, as part of the 10th anniversary of the album Random access memories. The Center Pompidou will offer “three title discovery experiences”, “free and open access within the limits of available places”. First, an “ultra-high-fidelity listening session, in collaboration with Ircam” will take place in Gallery 3 for 150 hand-picked lucky people. In addition, there will be a screening of the music video in Cinema 1, with 300 seats. Third variation, the “collective experience” with “projection on the giant screen in the heart of the Forum of the Center Pompidou, 350 seats” will close the event. See you Thursday at 6:30 p.m., where Daft Punk had their first rave on November 10, 1992, aged barely 18. An anthology party on the roof of the art center which would be at the origin of their desire to embark on electronic music… The circle is complete.
