NEW YORK (AP) — Daft Punk has set a record on Spotify.
The music service says the French electronic duo's song "Get Lucky" had the
biggest streaming day for a single track on Friday in the U.S. and the United
Kingdom. Spotify wouldn't release the number of streams.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop" previously held the record for
most streams in a day in the U.S. British band Bastille had the title in the
United Kingdom with the song "Pompeii."
Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" features rapper-producer Pharrell. It's the first
single from the group's fourth album, "Random Access Memories," due out May 21.
It's their first studio album since 2005's "Human After All," though the band
scored the "Tron: Legacy" soundtrack in 2010. They won a Grammy in 2009.
