Daft Punk's New Tune Has Smashed Records, But Is It Really That Good?

By Sam Gibbs on at

OK, so unless you've been living under a rock for a week, you should know that Daft Punk has a new track called 'Get Lucky' out for everyone and their mums to listen to. It seems that's exactly what's happened too, because it's absolutely smashed Spotify streaming records in both the UK and US. But, really, is it actually that good?

The previous one-day streaming record was set by Bastille's Pompeii in the UK, so I'm not sure whether it's really that much of an achievement as Spotify's not releasing hard and fast numbers. Still, everyone I know seems to be obsessed with it, including our fearless leader, Kat. What do you think, though? Is Daft Punk onto another winner here? I don't know about you, but I'm sure as hell looking forward to seeing what the duo have cooked up for the rest of the Random Access album. The Tron: Legacy soundtrack was truly epic. [BBC]
