An unreleased, unofficial track featuring Daft Punk and Jay Z has surfaced online and it's all kinds of awesome.

When the track was recorded is pretty unclear, but we'd say the frequent Blackberry references date it back quite a few years. Rolling Stone notes that the intro is sampled on the French electronic duo's "Tron: Legacy" soundtrack in 2010, but Jay's portion of the song is not used.

According to the site, the song reemerged on a Daft Punk fan site and was rumored to have been produced by Kanye West -- but Pitchfork confirms that he did not. They also confirm that the song is in fact real (as in, recorded by the artists associated) and note that it "seems to have been made before the Samsung-sponsored days of Magna Carta Holy Grail."
