Daft Punk fans recently picked up on a quote from an article published by the Los Angeles Times on their website. The article, published on October 1st, focuses on the debut runway show of designer Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent Paris during Paris Fashion Week 2013. When setting the scene, the author briefly talks about the music:
“Then the music started thumping, music by Junior Kimbrough, edited by Daft Punk, according to the program notes.”
The music in question can be heard in the background of video footage of the show itself on the Saint Laurent Paris website. It lasts the entire duration of the show, stretching to around 16 minutes in length. The song is called “I Gotta Try You Girl” by Junior Kimbrough. You can listen to the original song on Youtube.
It may not be the new single everyone wanted but it’s something new for us to listen to in the mean time.
