Daft Punk tops charts with new release
Enigmatic French electro-duo Daft Punk scored their first ever British Number One album as “Random Access Memories” became the fastest-selling album of the year so far, according to the Official Charts Company.
The album sold 165,000 copies last week, knocking veteran performer Rod Stewart from the top spot.
The dance pair’s success in the album chart comes on the back of a four week stay at the top of the single chart with hit “Get Lucky.”
It is the band’s fourth studio album and is unusual in that it features session musicians and live instrumentation.
The LP features collaborations with Strokes singer Julian Casablancas, electro pioneer Giorgio Moroder and disco-legend Nile Rodgers.
