Listen: Is this the full new Daft Punk song, “Get Lucky”?

The new Daft Punk song, “Get Lucky” may have been leaked by a Canadian radio station.

It’s almost as if Daft Punk was asking for producers everywhere to cobble together fake versions of the new song, “Get Lucky.” The French duo released a series of 15 second clips, followed by a longer 1:47 clip that includes a chorus by Pharrell Williams. From that bit of marketing, we’ve got the ingredients to an electronic dance song: a couple samples, a chorus and a computer to put it all together with.

You can listen to what’s allegedly the new Daft Punk song here.

It was leaked by a Canadian radio station, the music blog Dancing Astronaut is reporting. We give it about a 75.2 percent chance of being real, mostly because anyone could use those clips and only add 15 percent’s worth of transitions to make a Daft Punk-ish song.

Our biggest issue with the most legitimate of these “Get Lucky” leaks is that the instrumental transition at 3:43 sounds a bit sketchy. Listen for yourself and let us know if it’s real or another fake.

Then listen to this “Get Lucky” fake below for comparison. Here’s a theory: These are all the real version, and the new Daft Punk album is a groundbreaking type of user-generated album produced through crowd sourcing. That actually sounds pretty cool. We’ll call it “DIY Daft Punk.”

    That is actually the fake one.

    The one that people think is real is on the huffington post site.

      Hey Scenecachet,

      Just checked on HuffPo, and it looks like they are linking to the same article and song as we are. The definitely fake one is in the YouTube song. The maybe-real one is the Dancing Astronaut article I link to. Anyway, maybe they’re all fake!

    Nope, doesn’t really sound like Nile Rodgers production to me. Could be a quality issue, but it doesn’t have the right feel.
