Despite being defunct, Daft Punk are still celebrating 10 years of Random Access Memories. Following the expanded version of the record released in May, the French duo are releasing reflections on their final album.

Memory Tapes is an eight-episode series which reminisces on Random Access Memories through archival footage and interviews with the band's collaborators. The first two episodes are available on YouTube now, and feature "Instant Crush" contributor Julian Casablancas, and pianist Chilly Gonzales who played on "Give Life Back to Music" and "Within." Watch them below.

The upcoming six episodes will feature Pharrell Williams, Todd Edwards, DJ Falcon, Nile Rodgers and more. All of the interviews were conducted at Henson Studios in Los Angeles and Gang Studios in Paris — two of the five spaces where Random Access Memories was recorded.
