The promotional push for Daft Punk's new Random Access Memories LP has been one of the strongest in recent memory. Between the surprise Coachella commercial, the SNL spots, and the excellent Creators Project "Collaborators" series, it's impossible to not know a new Daft Punk album is on its way. While the commercials were a complete surprise, the duo's latest appearance as part of Saint Laurent's Music Project, is not. Previously, the fashion house commissioned the duo to create a new mix of bluesman Junior Kimbrough's music for a runway show in October. The shiny new black threads, also designed by photographer Hedi Slimane, will serve as the band's new stage wear. 

You probably already know that the band's new single "Get Lucky" premieres tonight at midnight.
