Daft Punk's Get Lucky Breaks Spotify Records

Just a couple of days after Daft Punk finally released the long-awaited track, “Get Lucky” off of the band’s upcoming album, Random Access Memories, the track is already breaking records on the streaming service Spotify. On Friday, the band dropped the single and later during the day of its release, Spotify announced the track had the biggest streaming day of any track on the service.

Spotify currently isn’t giving out the exact number of streams “Get Lucky” produced on Friday or on subsequent days. However, BBC News is reporting the Swedish website’s numbers for Daft Punk are only including streams in the US and the UK. In the US, the record was held by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ hit song “Thrift Shop” until “Get Lucky” took over. In the UK, the record was previously held by Bastille with the song “Pompeii.”

Random Access Memories will be Daft Punk’s first full-length LP since 2005’s album Human After All. However, the guys have been busy since then, producing the live album Alive 2007 and the Tron: Legacy soundtrack. The band’s newest single features a collaboration with Pharrell, who also performed the song over the weekend.

Random Access Memories will be available in full on May 21.
