Daft Punk have just shared the drop of their unreleased cut, ‘The Writing of Fragments of Time’ featuring Todd Edwards. The new drop is the first to stem from their special edition version of ‘Random Access Memories’.
One of nine previously unreleased pieces, ‘The Writing of Fragments of Time’ is described as a “documentary track”, and is constructed from a session at the Henson Recording Studios in Hollywood.
Todd Edwards has previously collaborated with the French duo on their ‘Discovery’ LP and on the original version of ‘Fragments of Time’, which was included in ‘Random Access Memories’, where they set out to a tape to record every minute of the process. These new outtakes and “behind-the-scenes” moments have been implemented in the creation of ‘The Writing of Fragments of Time’.
“When Thomas (Bangalter) reached out to me to tell me that they were going to do this, well it was really cool because they had the audio recording as we were writing this song in Studio B of Henson Studios in LA. And so it’s just cool because it just captured these really authentic moments, laughing and just being blown away,” said Edwards while speaking to Zane Lowe.
