The helmet-wearing duo, Pharrell and Nile Rodgers throw a dance party in their sparkling outfits.
After dropping a one-minute preview of "Lose Yourself to Dance" last month at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, Daft Punk now premieres the track's music video in full. It is the French electronic music act's second collaboration with hitmaker Pharrell Williams off their May-released fourth studio album "Random Access Memories".
Along with record producer The Neptunes and guitarist Nile Rodgers, who are both co-writers of the funky disco track, Daft Punk plays their latest dance party anthem to an intimate crowd, with all four guys wearing matching sparkly silver blazers. Pharrell fronts their makeshift band while Rodgers handles guitar-playing chores for their quartet.
"Lose Yourself to Dance" is Daft Punk's follow-up to lead single "Get Lucky" but since that song did not have an official music video, this latest clip serves as their first full-length visuals in years. Along with the video, they also released a "Star Wars"-inspired poster for the new song.
As for launching a tour in support of their new album, as what other artists usually do, the duo of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo have sadly stated that it's simply "not possible." Saying "the nature of this record makes it not really possible to tour it," Bangalter however did not totally write off the possibility that fans could get to hear some of their "Random Access Memories" tracks in future gigs. "That's something we'll experiment with in the future," he said.
