Daft Punk Slow It Down With “Horizon”: Hear The Spacey ‘Random Access Memories’ Bonus Track

Daft Punk‘s latest album Random Access Memories is filled with smooth uptempos, but the French electro-house duo toys with a different sound on “Horizon.” The bonus instrumental, which is featured on the Japanese version of the album, is completely hypnotic and begins with an acoustic guitar and atmospheric sheen. The song gradually picks up speed when the other instruments kick in, building to a space-rock odyssey reminiscent of Pink Floyd.

The mellow, trance-like song is a surprising change from the already surprising RAM material. Listen to “Horizon” below.
