Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories Is Setting Spotify RecordsBy: Josh Wolford - May 24, 2013
The radio edit of Daft Punk’s new single “Get Lucky” has already broken Spotify records and currently sits at over 28.3 million streams. Now, Spotify has announced that the album on which it’s featured is also breaking records.
Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories launched on Spotify on May 21st, having spent the previous week available as a free stream on iTunes. On that day, Daft Punk set a new record for the most-streams for an album on its first day in US, UK, France, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Germany, the Netherlands, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Mexico.
And that’s not the only record that Random Access Memories is going to set. According to Spotify, if current streaming trends hold, the album will wind up as the most streamed album ever in the week of its initial release.
If it takes that crown, it will take it from Mumford & Sons’ Babel.
