Daft Punk simply can’t keep themselves off of the public’s radar these days. After their production credit on The Weeknd’s single, “Starboy,” alleged festival lineup leaks, new Alive website and more, the French electronic duo have now popped up in another unexpected realm. This time, however, Kanye West is involved.

A leaked demo track between he and Kid Cudi surfaced on the internet this week, coming as a Cudi-styled passionate heater. While it may stand as an early version of the song’s idea, one of the backbone pieces of the production on “Can’t Look Into My Eyes” was taken from Daft Punk’s “The Son of Flynn,” created for the Tron: Legacy film in 2010.

The cascading arpeggios from the Daft Punk track give a driving momentum to the new Cudi demo, adding an extra layer of nostalgia and groove. Listen to both tracks below, and compare to the officially released Daft Punk-free version, “Too Bad I Have To Destroy You Now,” at the bottom.

The Story Behind Daft Punk & Jay Z’s Scrapped Collaboration Revealed

This post was originally published on this site

Mitchell Leib, the president of music and soundtracks for Walt Disney Records, just revealed the secret story behind a scrapped collaboration between Daft Punk and Jay Z for Disney’s Tron: Legacy back in 2010. The track was eventually leaked in 2014, and the reason that it stayed unreleased might not be a huge surprise – it wasn’t that good.

Daft Punk didn’t even want to make the single in the first place, but Leib reveals that the duo was “tortured” to make an official single for the soundtrack. In the end, Leib was afraid that the filmmakers would find the track “too rooted in real life and rap for their fantasy movie,” which we would happen to agree with.

Even getting Daft Punk to work on the film at all was a laborious process, taking nearly two years and various suitors for them to sign on. It wasn’t until Leib was cast with the job that the duo finally acquiesced.

“Daft Punk, for the most part, only do one thing at a time, which is why they’re so great at what they do—it is incredible focus,” said Leib. “So I think at the time that they were initially approached, they were too tied up with other things.” But after four or five months of nagging, they finally signed on and we got one of the best movie soundtracks of the year.

The Jay Z collab came about as an attempt to create an official single for the soundtrack, and the decision to approach Jay Z was a collective one. Unfortunately, as we’re all aware, the song didn’t make it to the final cut.
