Today brings the first official music video from the robots’ new album in the form of a sparkly visual interpretation of “Lose Yourself to Dance.” The video, directed by Thomas, Guy-Man, Warren Fu, Paul Hahn, and Cedric Hervet, shows Daft Punk, Nile Rodgers, and Pharrell Williams performing the not-of-this-decade tune to a very enthused group of club-goers.
