Daft Punk Premiering Unreleased Song at Paris’ Pompidou Center

“Infinity Repeating” features Julian Casablancas and will appear on the 10th anniversary reissue of Random Access Memories

On Thursday, May 11, Daft Punk premiere a previously-unreleased song at Paris’ Pompidou Center. The track, titled “Infinity Repeating,” is from the duo’s 10th anniversary reissue of Random Access Memories, which arrives the following day. “Infinity Repeating” was originally tracked during recording sessions for Random Access Memories and features vocals from Julian Casablancas, who also appeared on the LP’s “Instant Crush.” Find it below.

According to the Pompidou Center’s website, there are three ways to experience “Infinity Repeating” at the museum. For the “ultra-high fidelity listening experience” the track is played on a sound system composed of 30 speakers. The center also hosts a “cinematic experience” to accompany the song, as well as a “collective experience” that features a video debuted on the giant screen at the 350-seat Pompidou Center Forum. Admission is free on a first-come first-served basis.

The Pompidou Center is intertwined with Daft Punk’s history: In 1992, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo attended their first rave at the museum when they were still teenagers.

Daft Punk recorded “Infinity Repeating” just before “Instant Crush” at New York’s Electric Lady Studios and Conway Recording Studios in Los Angeles in 2013. According to press materials, the track was dubbed “the last Daft Punk song ever.”

“Infinity Repeating” was based on the concept of an infinity loop, and is “a little stranger and more jazz modern chord-wise than the others on the record,” as Julian Casablancas put it in press materials.

He continued: “It just cycles up like a pattern—it’s a four half-step cycle moving up on repeat. I wanted Stevie Wonder to sing it. Somehow has island summer vibes too... it’s lovely and bizarre. Like a human. And like a human, obsessed with infinity and constantly making the same mistakes and movements.”

Daft Punk broke up in February 2021. They announced the news with an eight-minute visual titled “Epilogue,” excerpted from their 2006 film Electroma. Last year, they reissued their pivotal debut album, Homework.

Bangalter recently released a new solo LP, Mythologies, featuring compositions from his first independent orchestral work.
