A bonus track from the Japanese version of Daft Punk's new album Random Access Memories has emerged online, and is available for listen at NO BPM LIMIT

Daft Punk: All Hail Our Robot Overlords

The track, "Horizon," is an instrumental that is the most meditative track on the disco-charged new album, which came out yesterday. Random Access Memories also includes current single "Get Lucky," featuring Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers. The album also features collaborations with Julian Casablancas, Animal Collective's Panda Bear and Giorgio Moroder.

The French duo released the highly-anticipated new album for live streaming on May 13th following a teaser clip of the band unboxing the vinyl edition to the tune of new track "Give Life Back to Music."

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
