You may want to compare this new remix to the original. They're a little different.
"Get Lucky" was co-written by performers Daft Punk with Pharrell Williams and Nile Ridgers. The lead single off the group's latest studio album, "Random Access Memories," was first released as a digital download on April 19, 2013. A fast hit, "Get Lucky" broke the record for the highest number of plays in a single day on Spotify. It reportedly took about 18 months to get the song right.
The original "Get Lucky" track has already hit number 1 in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and Venezuela. In the United States -- hardly the center of the dance music scene -- "Get Lucky" has reached the number 3 spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
