Yet another Daft Punk track could be on the way, or at least a full preview of Get Lucky. The french DJ Life Like has worked with Daft Punk in the past. Life Like tweeted this earlier in the week:
Good news, our french robots DaftPunk will premiere their new single next week on the french radio ‘Fun Radio’, i didnt say anything : )
And then this:
Monday … Fun Radio … DP premiere …
Unfortunately, both of these tweets have since been deleted. However, this does make quite a bit of sense as there is a french radio station named “Fun Radio”. It is unclear as to whether this “new single” will be Get Lucky or a new, unheard track. Anyway, be sure to keep your ears open tomorrow and stay tuned to Your EDM as we will be sure to post any news as soon as it breaks.
UPDATE: We have now received confirmation that the radio station will not be playing a new track but rather the 1 minute preview of “Get Lucky” that was aired at Coachella. They have stated that they’ve received excerpts of the track but not the full length version to the disappointment of fans worldwide, including ourselves. The fact that the radio station waited until today to release that statement leads us to believe they were simply seeking the added viewership and hype.
@fredbenudis … on a diffusé des extraits, le def n’est pas encore envoyé aux radios …

UPDATE 2: In what appears to be an interesting turn of events, Fun Radio decided to in fact play what they claimed to be the full length version of Daft Punk’s collaboration with Nile Rodgers & Pharrell Williams’ “Get Lucky”. What is even more interesting are the increasing claims that this premiere is actually a FAKE. The reason for such accusations is that the track played is identical to a supposedly leaked version of “Get Lucky” that has been spreading throughout the internet this past weekend. So it begs the question, is the leak real? or did Fun Radio simply fake their premiere in an attempt to redeem themselves. You can listen to both the leak and the RIP of Fun Radio’s Get Lucky right below.
