It appears that either Random Access Memories leaked this morning and/or the record label made the snap executive decision to release a free stream on iTunes a week before the album’s release date. Whether this was a purposeful leak or not, it comes as a surprise that the album has now apparently gotten out into the wilds of the Internet over a week before its established release date of May 21st. Either way, you can hear it right now in all its glory on iTunes! Give it a first, second, and third listen here.
The album features collaborations with the likes of Pharrell, Julian Casablancas, Chilly Gonzales and Giorgio Moroder.
You can pre-order the album here on Amazon.
* = In order to hear the stream, you’ll need to open Daft Punk’s artist page on the iTunes Store.
