Listen to Daft Punk’s ‘Give Life Back To Music’ studio outtakes

Daft Punk have shared some studio outtakes of their track ‘Give Life Back To Music’ – you can listen below.

The original version of the song serves as the opener to the French duo’s fourth and final album ‘Random Access Memories’, which turns 10 years old in 2023.

In February, the band – comprising Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo – announced a special anniversary edition of the Grammy-winning record. The forthcoming collection was then previewed by ‘The Writing Of Fragments Of Time’.


Today (April 20), Daft Punk released another cut from the expanded reissue in the form of ‘GLBTM’ (Studio Outtakes)’.

Clocking in at six-minutes-and-21-seconds, the tune is essentially a pre-production demo version of ‘Give Life Back To Music’, boasting orchestral elements that combine with classical piano and harpsichord.

A shorter two-minute-and-38-second edit of ‘GLBTM’ (Studio Outtakes)’ is also available on streaming platforms. Additionally, an accompanying visual has landed on YouTube – listen and watch here:
