The 14-track set collects material that was previously only available to members of the Daft Club, access to which was enabled by a special card included in copies of the group's 2001 album, "Discovery."
Among the highlights are the group's own remix of the "Discovery" staple "Aerodynamic," the Neptunes' remix of "Harder Better Faster Stronger," Basement Jaxx's retooling of the new track "Phoenix," Demon's remix of the "Budweiser" ad campaign track "Face to Face" and "Something About Us," the "love theme" from the Daft Punk-scored animated film "Interstella 5555."
A video for the latter cut has been serviced to music channels and is expected to run via in-store programming in such retail stores as Macy's, H&M and Steve Madden. Remixes of "Face to Face" are also being serviced to clubs and dance mix shows.
In other Daft Punk news, the group is planning to make available action figures of the characters from "Interstella 5555" via its official Web site.
"Discovery" peaked at No. 3 on Billboard's Top Electronic Albums chart. It featured three top-10 hits on Billboard's Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart: "One More Time" (No. 1), "Harder Better Faster Stronger" (No. 3) and "Digital Love" (No. 9).
