James Murphy provides update on new LCD Soundsystem album

It has been nearly seven years since This Is Happening, the last full length record from Brooklyn’s wonderfully endearing ‘dance-punk’ pioneers LCD Soundsystem.

James Murphy, a man who, five years ago, decided to call time on the band with an emotional Madison Square Garden show, could not resist the itch of a return and last year reunited the band for a series of headline shows.

Now though, with the promise of a new record for 2017, Murphy took to Facebook to reply to one fan’s request for an update it’s progress: “News on the new LCD album soon?” a fan asked.

Murphy replied: “Sure. Still working on it, but it’ll be done soon. Winter tends to mess with my voice, so finishing the thing drags out.”
