The teaser video for Daft Punk’s new album gets shredded. Featuring their single “Get Lucky” with Pharrell on vocals and guitarist Nile Rodgers, TopitoTV gets rid of all the audio and replaces it with bad vocals and instrumentals. While we don’t know how Daft Punk would respond to the video, at least we know Rodgers had a good laugh about it, tweeting:
@webabla HA HA! That shredded version has me totally CRYING!!! You’ve made my day with that. I needed a good laugh.

Even if you don’t appreciate the comedic efforts, you could always hit the mute button and admire Hedi Slimane sparkly handiwork for Saint Laurent who dressed everyone for the video.
Get ready to dance the night away to Daft Punk’s funky new song “Get Lucky”.
Featuring the always talented Pharrell Williams, the song sounds like an old-school disco jam and sounds and awful lot like Canadian electrofunk band Chromeo.
‘Get Lucky’ is Daft Punk’s first single off their fourth album titled, “Random Access Memories”, due to come out on May 21. This will be their first studio album since “Human After All”, which was released in 2005.
However, if anyone has been keeping track, the french duo scored the”Tron: Legacy” soundtrack in 2010, which unfortunately seemed to be the best part of the film…
If you’re sick of the hardcore, in-your-face dubstep we hear in many of today’s Electronic Dance Music singles, then perhaps Daft Punk’s highly anticipated new single is worth a listen.
“I Will Wait” — Mumford & Sons
If you’re looking for a new song to add to that lay-in-bed-stare-at-the-ceiling-and-dream-about-my-crush playlist, look no further! English folk rockers Mumford & Sons’ new single “I Will Wait” is a bluegrass, banjo-y track filled with soft harmonies and earnest vocals that will cut straight to your heart. Ah, if only my (nonexistent) boyfriend would write music like this and sing it to me…and maybe bring me flowers every night, new jewelry once in a while, and look like Ryan Gosling. Pick up Mumford & Sons’ second album Babel on Sept. 24.
“Glow” — Mac Miller ft. Pharell
Mac Miller and Pharell Williams get glossy in their new track “Glow,” off the two artists’ upcoming EP Pink Slime. The duo released “Onaroll” back in June, and it would appear that Mac Millions and Skateboard P are a collaborative force to be reckoned with. Backed by ethnic-inspired violins, and a hyper beat, the boys lay down their rhymes, sounding confident and smooth. Sidenote: Mac Miller manages to yell “Mother f**ker” for ten seconds straight. If that’s not talent, I don’t know what is.

Pharrell Williams is going green in a unique way: transforming bottles into clothes.
The Grammy-winning producer has teamed up with Bionic Yarns, a New York-based textile firm that makes fabrics out of recycled plastic containers, as an owner, investor and spokesperson.
“I’m so interested with the technology behind this,” Pharrell said in a statement. “I am also very concerned with the environment and want to make a conscious effort to make it better.”
The musician hopes to see the environmentally sustainable fabric used in a variety of products.
“We want to do everything from high end luggage, to high end denim, to university caps and gowns to Parks Department uniforms,” he said. “It’s a plus that the fabric brings environmentalism to a whole new level.”
According to Bionic Yarn, more than 60 million plastic bottles are destroyed daily. The company says they can make an average piece of luggage from 18 one-litre containers and a pair of jeans from seven.
