Daft Punk's album Random Access Memories finds them leaving behind the highly influential, riff-heavy EDM they originated to luxuriate in the sounds, styles, and production techniques of the 1970s and early 80s.

Unlike their previous albums, Daft Punk recruited session musicians to perform live instrumentation and limited the use of electronic instruments to drum machines, a custom-built modular synthesizer, and vintage vocoders. The album features collaborations with Giorgio MoroderPanda BearJulian CasablancasTodd EdwardsDJ FalconChilly GonzalesNile RodgersPaul Williams and Pharrell Williams. It is the first Daft Punk album released by Columbia Records.

 

Random Access Memories received critical acclaim, scoring an 87 out of 100 on review aggregator site Metacritic and appearing on many music critics' year-end lists. It is one of Daft Punk's most commercially successful albums, topping the charts in more than 25 countries worldwide. It was their first album to top the United States Billboard 200 chart, selling more than 339,000 copies within its first week. The lead single "Get Lucky" was a critical and commercial success, topping the charts in more than 30 countries and becoming one of the best-selling digital singles of all time. At the 56th Annual Grammy Awards in 2014, the album won Grammy Awards for Album of the YearBest Dance/Electronica Albumand Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical, and "Get Lucky" won for Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
