Daft Punk - "Within"
It's simple -- Daft Punk's new album, Random Access Memories, is the most eagerly anticipated album of the year (& quite possibly the last few years). French duo, Thomas Bangalter, 38, and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, 39, are behind it all - fusing Nineties electronica, disco, to American club pop. The whole album (set to release May 21st) is incredible, with a hall of fame roster (Noah Lennox [Panda Bear], Nile Rodgers, Julian Casablancas, Giorgio Moroder, Paul Williams, Pharrell Williams, Todd Edwards). Memories range from dancier grooves to the more sultry. One beautiful track of choice is "Within" (in collaboration with Chilly Gonzales) Here are some lyrics.
There are so many things that I don't understand
There's a world within me that I cannot explain
Many rooms to explore, but the doors look the same
I am lost, I can't even remember my name
I've been, for sometime, looking for someone
I need to know now, please tell me who I am.
