Daft Punk’s hugely successful CD “Alive 2007” will be rereleased as a double-vinyl edition Dec. 23 — just in time for last-minute awesome gift-giving.
“Alive 2007” is a mix of the French house duo’s most well-received studio songs up to that point — reworked and reimagined.
It was recorded live at Bercy in Paris on June 14, 2007, and was originally only available as a CD or digital download. “Alive 2007” garnered a Grammy for “Best Electronic/Dance Album” in 2009.
The “Alive 2007” double-vinyl edition is set to be a triple gatefold.
Side A: ROBOT ROCK / OH YEAH / TOUCH IT / TECHNOLOGIC / TELEVISION RULES THE NATION / CRESCENDOLLS
Side B: TOO LONG / STEAM MACHINE / AROUND THE WORLD / HARDER BETTER FASTER STRONGER / BURNIN / TOO LONG
Side C: FACE TO FACE / SHORT CIRCUIT / ONE MORE TIME / AERODYNAMIC / AERODYNAMIC BEATS / FORGET ABOUT THE WORLD
Side D: PRIME TIME OF YOUR LIFE / BRAINWASHER / ROLLIN AND SCRATCHIN / ALIVE / DA FUNK / DAFTENDIREKT / SUPERHEROES / HUMAN AFTER ALL / ROCKNROLL
Adding to the hype — a limited edition of “Alive 2007” will be released at the same time. This one will have the album on two solid-white vinyl records, plus a vinyl bonus, a 52-page book of concert pics, a slipmat and download card.
On the vinyl bonus: Side A– The show’s encore (Human After All / Together / One More Time (reprise) / Music Sounds Better With You). Side B — “Alive 2007” pyramid logo etched.
Along with all that comes a silver vinyl edition of Daft Punk’s first live album “Alive 1997.”
How’s that for holiday gift-giving?
