Daft Punk decided to forgo a full-length video for “Get Lucky,” the first single off Random Access Memories. But for the album’s second single, “Lose Yourself to Dance,” the electronic duo takes a more traditional approach, in more ways than one.

Much like the “Get Lucky” clip, the video features Pharrell Williams and Chic’s Nile Rodgers singing and playing guitar, respectively. It has a decidedly throwback feel, corresponding with Random Access Memories as a whole. There’s an otherworldly appearance to it as well; the band’s circular, lit-up surroundings are reminiscent of the inside of a UFO.

Williams, Rodgers and their robot friends perform atop an elevated platform, below which a bevy of disco dancers, ahem, lose themselves to dance. Really, that’s much of what the video is — a lot of dancing, some clapping and bobbing to the beat, closeups of Rodgers’ rhythmic guitar playing, lens flare from the band’s undeniably shiny suits, and more dancing.

The full-length video follows a clip of the song that premiered during the MTV Video Music Awards last month. There was dancing there, too.
