When Daft Punk released its first teaser trailer for Random Access Memories during SNL last month, we were easily baited. Hook, line, and sinker. The spot featured a fifteen-second snippet of presumed leadoff single “Get Lucky.” Since then, the promo push has been an endless stream of street bills and even a highly-visible billboard above the Bowery.

Fans were treated to forty-five seconds more of “Get Lucky” this past weekend, again toward the end of SNL. The track features legendary producer Nile Rodgers on guitar and Pharrell on vox. There’s an impressive list of additional collaborators: Giorgio Moroder, Todd Edwards, DJ Falcon, Chilly Gonzales, Panda Bear and Julian Casablancas.
