Daft Punk Is No. 1 on Album Chart
By BEN SISARIO
Daft Punk.Chad Batka for The New York Times Daft Punk.
A long-awaited album by a beloved act, drenched in the sound of vintage disco-funk, gets a lot of advance promotion and opens at No. 1 with a bang. No, not Justin Timberlake’s latest, “The 20/20 Experience.” This week that accolade belongs to Daft Punk, the robot-hatted French dance duo, whose comeback album, “Random Access Memories” (Daft Life/Columbia), has a big start on the Billboard chart.
Daft Punk’s album sold 339,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan, the second-biggest opening sales week of the year. (“The 20/20 Experience” started with 968,000 in March.) After more than a decade as a highly influential group with modest record sales, Daft Punk finally has its hit.
