Interestingly, “Computerized” was in the running for inclusion on Random Access Memories, as well as Jay Z’s last album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, but didn’t make the cut for either record. Instead, it’s being released on the internet, via a completely blacked-out (shades of The Black Album) YouTube video. The video credits Kanye West as producer, but there are reports that that’s a mistake, and that Kanye actually had nothing to do with the track.
Kanye’s lack of involvement would actually make sense, because “Computerized” sounds very reminiscent of Daft Punk’s work on the Tron: Legacy soundtrack from a while back. In any case, you can form your own opinion on “Computerized” by Daft Punk and Jay Z by listening to the song below.
