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."

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
