‘Riga (Take 5)’ is 14 minutes long and features on a film soundtrack
A clip of a new, solo techno track from Daft Punk‘s Thomas Bangalter has been shared online.
‘Riga (Take 5)’ was composed for the soundtrack of Latvian film Riga (Take 1), which was released last year. The movie’s score was nominated for the Latvian Film Prize’s Best Score award.
The track is 14 minutes long and, despite the film it was written for already being out, is hard to find online. Now, Busy P, Daft Punk’s former manager and Ed Banger Records boss, has shared a snippet of the song on the Ed Banger Instagram page.
“THOMAS BANGALTER “Riga (Take 5) »14’41’’ of mental techno recorded in a single take. Taken from Riga (Take 1) original soundtrack. Limited edition one sided 12″,” he captioned the post. “Made in Latvia, not an #edbanger release.” Listen to the clip below.
Last month it was confirmed Bangalter had contributed a song to another film soundtrack, this time for the Climax score. The Gaspar Noé film also includes Daft Punk’s ‘Rollin’ & Scratchin” in its soundtrack.
Daft Punk haven’t released any new music since 2013’s ‘Random Access Memories‘, although they have collaborated with The Weeknd on two tracks from his 2016 album ‘Starboy‘ – the title track and ‘I Feel It Coming’.
