Umphrey’s McGee Cover Daft Punk’s New Single
Umphrey’s McGee debuted a cover of Daft Punk’s new single “Get Lucky.” The group busted into Daft Punk’s new single—which has only been out for four days—two songs into their first set at Austin, TX’s Stubb’s BBQ. “Get Lucky” is slated to appear as the eighth song on Daft Punk’s new album Random Access Memories, which will be released on May 17.
Last night was the third year in a row Umphrey’s McGee have celebrated 4/20 at Stubb’s. The group has covered a few other Daft Punk songs over the years, including “Voyager” and a mash-up of the electronica group’s “Robot Rock” and their own “The Triple Wide.” Umphrey’s McGee will host their UMBowl in Chicago this Friday.
