(Yahoo!) - Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas gets all dolled up as a Napoleon-era mannequin museum piece in Daft Punk's new video for "Instant Crush."
In the clip, the mannequin version of Casablancas falls for a young maiden doll, but due to a change at the museum, the love dolls are separated until they are tragically reunited in the clip's blazing finale. The museum love story is intercut with the real-life, leather jacket-clad Casablancas preening on a circular platform as he mimes his heavily processed vocals, singing over a mellow groove, "And we will never be alone again / 'Cause it doesn't happen every day / Kinda counted on you being a friend / Can I give it up or give it away."
It's unclear if Daft Punk's helmet-wearing main men Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalterappear in the clip; but they might be undercover as a knight in armor, a deep-sea diver, or an astronaut, all of which appear in the video.
Earlier this month, Daft Punk teased the clip on French television. "Instant Crush" is featured on Random Access Memories, the same album that spawned the song of the summer "Get Lucky" as well as the follow-up single "Lose Yourself to Dance."
The duo is offering an elaborate boxed set of the album, which has made many of the year's "best of" lists, via their website for a whopping $275. Packaged in a cloth-bound box with the album's title in gold foil, it includes a pair of gold- and silver-plated USB drives featuring high-resolution versions of the album's bonus tracks; as well as videos of "Lose Yourself to Dance" and the Coachella version of "Get Lucky," a pair of robot posters, a 56-page hardcover book with a foreword by Paul Williams, a 180-grade double-vinyl version of the album, a 10-inch version of "Giorgio by Moroder," and more.
Casablancas is just one of several noted collaborators featured on Random Access Memories. The set also includes collaborations with noted disco producer Giorgio Moroder, Chic's Nile Rodgers, current-day hitmaker Pharrell Williams, indie star Panda Bear, legendary songwriter Paul Williams, and others. The duo has been spotlighting their guest stars on a web series, dubbed "The Collaborators," on their website, but so far an episode featuring Casablancas has yet to materialize.
The sisters of indie pop band Haim has been remixed by the legendary producer Giorgio Moroder!
Moroder, who famously worked with Daft Punk on their latest album Random Access Memories, has put his special touch on the girls' "Forever," bringing out the song's more dance-y side, adding some synths and some robotic voices.

Daft Punk's summer jam "Get Lucky" is still getting love even though the temperatures have dropped.
"Rolling Stone" put the duo's collaborative single with Pharrell and Nile Rodgers at number one on their list of the 100 Best Songs of 2013. The magazine calls "Get Lucky" a "stardust disco groove for the ages" that manages to sound vintage and futuristic all at the same time.

Piranhas are known for their bite and their sharp teeth. Similarly, Wolfgang Gartner's "Piranha" has got some bite too - but we're not talking about a fish here.
Having recently finished up his Hounds of Hell tour with Tommy Trash, Wolfgang Gartner is back with another sharp tune! "Piranha" is melodic and elevating, but also packs in that electro-house his fans love him for.
"Piranha" will be released December 17th via his own Kindergarten Recordings.
