Random Access Memories is the fourth studio album by French electronic duo Daft Punk (Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter). Released on May 17, 2013 through Columbia Records, the album pays tribute to the late 1970s and early 1980s American music, particularly from Los Angeles. The album has been noted by music critics as a disco album, while drawing influence from progressive rock and pop. The album features collaborations with Giorgio Moroder, Panda Bear, Julian Casablancas, Todd Edwards, DJ Falcon, Chilly Gonzales, Nile Rodgers, Paul Williams, Nathan East, and Pharrell Williams.
Random Access Memories became Daft Punk's first and only album to top the US Billboard 200, and has since been certified platinum by RIAA. It also topped the charts in twenty other countries. Its lead single "Get Lucky" was a critical and commercial worldwide success, topping the charts in over thirty countries and becoming one of the best-selling digital singles of all time. The album received critical acclaim, appearing on several year-end lists, and won in several categories at the 2014 Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year, Best Dance/Electronica Album, and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical. "Get Lucky" also won the awards for Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. In 2020, Rolling Stone ranked the album at number 295 on their list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time".
