Today, two years later, the release of an expanded Anniversary edition of their last album is announced: Random Access Memories 10th Anniversary Edition to be released May 12th.
2023 marks the 10th anniversary of Random Access Memories, the band’s most wide-reaching & acclaimed album with x5 Grammy wins and spawning massive global hits such as “Get Lucky” (1B+ streams) and “Instant Crush” (800M+ streams).
