After months of teasing the U.S. release of Daft Punk’s newest album, Random Access Memories, the band has finally unveiled the prized offering. On Monday, Random Access Memories became available to U.S. audiences via iTunes, where the album can be heard in full. If you are just looking for a listen, iTunes is a good place to look, but if you are holding out to actually purchase the album, you’ll be able to do so beginning on the album’s previously announced release date, May 21.

The album offers more than an hour of sumptuous and fun electronic music, including the brand new single off of Random Access Memories, called “Get Lucky,” which has already broken Spotify records and climbed up the charts. There’s no reason to believe the album won’t follow the same trajectory, but until then, fans can give the album an early listen and decide whether or not it is worth an eventual purchase. I’m actually a little surprised that iTunes got the early listen win over NPR’s popular “First Listen” segment, but as long as the album is available to listen to, I’m a pretty happy camper.

MTV reported the news Monday afternoon, also noting the epic marketing the group has done via a spot on SNL and a teaser during this year’s Coachella Music and Arts Festival. It’s no wonder the marketing has been effective. Random Access Memories’ release is the band’s first full length release since 2005 brought fans Human After All. Since then, the band has also been busy producing the live album Alive 2007, as well as the Tron: Legacy soundtrack.
