Daft Punk set new Spotify record for most streams in a week
The French electronic duo have taken Mumford & Sons’ crown for the most-streamed album in its debut week.

DAFT PUNK have set another record on Spotify.

The music service says that the electronic duo’s new album, ‘Random Access Memories’, had the biggest number of streams in its first week in the United States.

Spotify wouldn’t release the number of streams, but Daft Punk beat the record of eight million streams set by Mumford & Sons’ album ‘Babel’ last year.

‘Random Access Memories’ was released last week and is the fourth album from the Grammy-winning French group.

Daft Punk also set a Spotify record last month when the album’s lead single, ‘Get Lucky’, had the biggest streaming day for a single track in the US and the United Kingdom.

Since its debut, “Get Lucky” has been streamed more than 27 million times.

Spotify launched in 2008.
