Madeon Releases Free Song Through Intriguing Puzzle

Madeon's fans were greeted by a very pleasant surprise this morning. He's been hard at work in the studio, creating new music. It appears that working on his new productions have made him want to release some music, and luckily for us, he had an old unreleased track that's been sitting on his computer.

The method through which he's allowing fans to download the song is pretty creative. Rather than simply asking fans to enter an email address or 'like' a Facebook page, Madeon is forcing them to solve a code.

Here is what his Facebook post says: "I've been back in the studio for a few weeks working on a bunch of new music - i'm too happy, I missed this so much. In the meantime though, i've hidden a free song here : www.madeon.fr/freedownload It's a track I made a couple of years ago and never released. You guys are usually super fast and clever, so let's see how that works !"

Quite a few people have already solved the code and posted about it on Madeon's Facebook post. I don't want to ruin the fun, though. If you don't want to try to solve the code for yourself, head over to Madeon's Facebook page to find out what the solution is. 

Originally, I did not want to include the song on here, as it would made the puzzle pointless for a lot of people. However, so many people have solved the puzzle at this point that I figure it's worth embedding the song on here for your listening pleasure. "Cut The Kid" is exactly what you would expect from an old Madeon track. It is very funky, and it will make you dance all day long. Listen below!
