Daft Punk's Most Revealing Interview Yet

The band also rolled out a teaser clip this morning that showed the duo unboxing the vinyl edition of their new album to the tune of their new track "Give Life Back to Music."

Daft Punk have been working on Random Access Memories since 2008, and the album will be out on May 21st. "We were drawing a parallel between the brain and the hard drive – the random way that memories are stored," Thomas Bangalter told Rolling Stone last month about the new album. "Electronic music right now is in its comfort zone and it's not moving one inch."

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
