Get Lucky (Radio Edit) [feat. Pharrell Williams] (4:08)

About this track

“Get Lucky” is a song by French house music duo Daft Punk, co-written by and featuring Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers. It is the lead single off of Daft Punk’s fourth studio album Random Access Memories. Pharrell said that the song was not about a sexual conquest, but the fortune in finding potential chemistry with someone. Before its release as a single, “Get Lucky” was featured in television advertisements broadcast during Saturday Night Live, after which Rodgers announced his involvement in the track.

Daft Punk first met Nile Rodgers at a listening party in New York for the 2001 album Discovery, and became friends thereafter. The duo acknowledged Chic’s influence in the song “Around the World” and had great respect for Rodgers. He noted however that a series of near misses and scheduling conflicts had delayed their chance of collaborating. The duo eventually invited Rodgers to the Random Access Memories sessions at Electric Lady Studios in New York City, which coincidentally was the studio where the first Chic single had been recorded.

Pharrell Williams had first heard from Daft Punk about the project “at a Madonna party” they were attending, and offered his services for a collaboration. The duo and Pharrell later met up in Paris, where he showed some of his own material he had been working on. Pharrell explained that he had been inspired by Rodgers, not knowing that Daft Punk had coincidentally been recording with him. Upon hearing “Get Lucky”, Pharrell remarked that the music evoked the sense of being on an exotic island during a “peachy color” sunrise.
