Daft Punk’s $275 ‘Random Access Memories’ Box Set Is Crazy, Includes Robot Design Schematics
Daft Punk have announced the details of Random Access Memories’ deluxe box set, and considering the amount of effort the French disco revivalists put into making the album’s release a capital-E Event, it should come as no surprise that they spared no expense on the premium re-release. Of course, that means diehard fans will have to spare no expense, as it comes with a $275 price tag.
In addition to the two vinyl LPs, the lavish package comes with a host of bonus materials and Daft Punk ephemera. There’s an eight-page booklet with artwork, credits and lyrics, a film strip from the “Lose Yourself To Dance” video’s dailies, a photo book from the RAM recording and film sessions and even design schematics for the robot helmets and bodies, in case you want to stage your own interview with the Robots in your basement.
Buried inside all of this fanfare, though, are some real gems: a 10” vinyl with an extended interview with Giorgio Moroder from the “Giorgio By Moroder” sessions, as well as gold and silver USB drives loaded with the digital version of the album, bonus track “Horizon,” DP’s self-remix of “Get Lucky,” the “Lose Yourself to Dance” video, the RAM TV spots and an extended version of their Coachella promo with Pharrell and Nile Rodgers.
Everything comes in a cloth-bound box with a gold foil logo, and it’s available for pre-order now for early December shipment. Head below for a graphic laying out the full details, or click over to the duo’s official site.
