Memory Tapes will consist of eight episodes that offer an inside look at the creation of the album as well as highlights from the various collaborators who were featured on the LP. The collaborators share their favourite memories and the impact both Daft Punk and the album have had on their music and careers.
The first two episodes of Memory Tapes feature The Strokes’ frontman Julian Casablancas who collaborated with the French duo on Instant Crush and pianist Chilly Gonzales, who played on Within and Give Life Back To Music.
Upcoming episodes will include contributions from Nile Rodgers, Pharrell Williams, Todd Edwards, DJ Falcon, and more.
The interviews were conducted at Henson Studios in Los Angeles and Gang Studios in Paris which are two of the five spaces in which Random Access Memories was recorded. Each episode will also feature never-before-seen studio footage of Daft Punk during the recording process.
Memory Tapes is the latest in a series of celebrations for Random Access Memories. Back in May, a 10th anniversary reissue of the album was released with nine bonus tracks adding up to 35 minutes of previously unreleased music. It’s available in 3LP, 2CD, streaming, and downloadable formats. A spatial audio (Atmos) mix of the original album has also be made available for the first time. Check out the tracklisting below.
