3. MUSIC: Daft Punk: Random Access Memories
Who knew the world was so hungry for a new Daft Punk album? The French electronica duo, known for wearing shiny motorcycle helmets when they spin, is clearly having a moment, with their fourth album, Random Access Memories, sparking serious excitement. RAM, out Tuesday, was the talk of Coachella, and the album’s disco-ified first single, “Get Lucky,” is Spotify’s most-streamed new song on record and has nearly 27 million views on YouTube. Apparently, the ’70s influence is strong on RAM, with collaborations from era legends like Nile Rodgers and Giorgio Moroder.
