On paper it’s a mildly peculiar proposition – Daft Punk teaming up with Ariel Pink on a Tron: Legacy soundtrack remix. In reality it’s rather lovely.

Vinyl International are the record label behind the team up, which features on a newly released 10″ EP called Sky Sailor,  and also includes two new TRS-80 remixes of tracks from Daft Punk‘s score for Tron: Legacy. The tracklist is as follows:

01 Daft Punk – Sky Sailor (feat. TRS-80 and Ariel Pink)
02 TRS-80 – Now Approaching
03 TRS-80 – Night Flashes (10″ Mix)
04 Daft Punk – End of Line (feat. TRS-80)
05 TRS-80 – Blue Fade

The title track (a remix of, Solar Sailer) is the stand out tune and includes some delightfully dreamy new lyrics and vocals from LA underground darling, Ariel Pink. Check it out below:
