Monday mornings almost always suck; whether it's waking up in a drunken haze, with vaguely spotted memories of the weekend, or in sheer disdain of the impending week... Nothing incredibly good/bad ends up happening most Mondays. Daft Punk's new pseudo-video for "Get Lucky" kinda feels like a hazy, weekend-spun memory, too. It was initially released via some grainy cell phone-shot footage that was filmed @ Coachella Friday night. The band's third Random Access Memories [May 20-21st] TV commercial aired Saturday night during the new Vince Vaughn-hosted episode of SNL. One would most likely assume that this is all the clever build-up to an upcoming "Get Lucky" music video, which would feature Daft Punk, Pharrell & Nile Rodgers outfitted in bedazzled Saint Laurent suits.
Temporary frontman Pharrell recently told The Creators Project that "the robots" sought him out @ a Madonna party, drugged him, an flew him out to a Paris recording studio (not exactly in that order). He then recounted that "Get Lucky"'s ideally exists on "some kind of exotic island where it's forever 4 in the morning... [No,] getting lucky is not just sleeping with her, but meeting someone for the first time and it just clicking." I've never been a huge Daft Punk fan, but I've always admired the fact that they've somehow been able to become world-famous Rockstars without having to deal with exhausting fan/media attention; Thomas Bangalter & Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo were supposedly standing stage right, mid-crowd amongst unsuspecting fans as "Get Lucky" debuted across the surrounding Jumbo-tron screens @ Coachella late Friday night.
