If Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories were truly to recreate the ’70s era of moneyed studio excess, it’d need its own outsize box set. As hinted during the recent New York Comic Con, the French disco robots do indeed have a deluxe, box-shaped version of their 2013 album on the way in time for the holiday buying-things-as-gifts season. It’s no four-disc set like Chicago at Carnegie Hall, but Daft Punk’s website shows the collection will cost $275 — compare that to the $125 price tag for Nirvana’s recent In Utero “Super Deluxe” reissue — and will include a lavish amount of extras.
Inside the box, Daft Punk fans will find a double vinyl LP of Random Access Memories with an eight-page booklet. A separate 10-inch vinyl record will contain an extended version of Giorgio Moroder’s “Giorgio by Moroder” chat. Gold- and silver-plated USB drives will contain high-resolution digital versions of the album, plus Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” remix, bonus track “Horizon,” and all the associated promotional videos (including the recent “Lose Yourself to Dance”). There’s also a 56-page hardcover photo book with a foreword by Paul Williams, a pair of full-body robot-design posters, a motion-picture film strip, and more.
Pre-order the set, which will ship in early December, and explore the full details of the offerings over at Daft Punk’s website.
