Curiously absent until some five months after its initial release, Daft Punk‘s Random Access Memories is getting the deluxe treatment in the form of a collection-worthy $275 USD box set. Packed inside a gold foil-stamped cloth-bound box, the release includes the album on 180 gram double vinyl with gold and silver foil labels; a booklet containing artwork, album credits and lyric sheets; a 56-page hardcover book of images from the RAM recording sessions and film shoots; and even a 10” containing an extended interview with Giorgio Moroder taken from the original sessions the track “Giorgio by Moroder.” It doesn’t stop there, however: also included are sets of Robot helmet design schematics – complete with individual components separated onto eight layers of unbounded transparencies and housed in a clear presentation pouch – a pair of heavyweight matte-finish full-body Robot design schematic posters measuring 12” x 24”, and a 70mm motion picture film strip containing sequential frames from the “Lose Yourself to Dance” music video. Finally, a pair of gold- and silver-plated, metal-encased USB drives contains everything from RAM and its bonus tracks in high-resolution 88.2KHz/24-bit digital audio to HD music videos, television campaigns and promos. Slated to ship in December, the all-inclusive box set can be pre-ordered online now.
