Daft Punk release their last ever track Infinity Repeating Ft. Julian Casablancas
Daft Punk have just released a unique version of their iconic Random Access Memories- a 10th Anniversary Edition, which is an expanded, celebratory edition of their 5x Grammy winning, 2x Platinum last album.
The record includes some extra special unreleased tracks including “Infinity Repeating (2013 Demo)” a track recorded ten years ago during the sessions for Random Access Memories at Conway Recording Studios in Los Angeles and Electric Lady Studios in New York.
It was created before “Instant Crush,” another Daft Punk x Julian Casablancas collaboration but is only now being released. Dubbed the last Daft Punk song ever, “Infinity Repeating (2013 Demo)” has a dreamy, ethereal, jazzy quality.
Casablancas describes the track as “a little stranger and more jazz modern chord-wise than the others on the record. It just cycles up like a pattern – It’s a four half-step cycle moving up on repeat. I wanted Stevie Wonder to sing it. Somehow It has island summer vibes too… It’s lovely and bizarre. like a human. and like a human, obsessed with infinity and constantly making the same mistakes and Movements.”
Last night, the video for “Infinity Repeating (2013 Demo)” featuring Julian Casablancas+The Voidz was unveiled at a one time unique in person event at the Center Pompidou in Paris. Directed by long-time Daft Punk collaborator Warren Fu,
The video features a continuous, evolving walk cycle as an open metaphor. Developed as a collaboration among three animation studios (Picnic Studios – London, H5 Studio – Paris, and Light Studios – Paris) with distinct specialties to create the one shot video. The challenge was to seamlessly integrate the work of each studio to create a singular work of art. Seeing each other’s work not only inspired and challenged the artists, but also created a sense of community in creating something Special.
Says Fu, “This project is especially dear to me not only because I was the mutual friend that introduced Julian to Guy Man and Thomas, but it is also the final music video for Daft Punk. Like a lot of the robot’s music, I wanted to create something simple and hypnotic on the surface, that reveals more upon repeat listens and viewings.”
