LCD Soundsystem Confirm Release Date of New Album
May 18th is shaping up to be one expensive day... Earlier this week it was confirmed that Band of Horses and the Black Keys will both be releasing their new albums on the aforementioned day, and today pitchfork have confirmed that LCD Soundsystem will be releasing their third album too!
James Murphy has not given us a title as of yet, simply letting us know that the record is 65 minutes in length and consists of 9 tracks, while the first single will be either "Drunk Girls" or "Change" we are told.
Murphy also commented in the past that this will be his final record under the LCD Soundsystem moniker and that he intends to tour on it too. Hopefully a few festival appearances could be lined up - I could see this guy at Electric Picnic. (Hopefully alongside Arcade Fire, though I may just be dreaming now!)
The following are the titles of the songs that will appear on the album:
Dance Yrself Clean
All I Want
Somebody's Calling Me
What You Need
The last two releases from LCD Soundsystem have been highly enjoyable, so here's hoping that this is continued this year!
*By the way, it has come to my attention that May 18th is actually a Tuesday. I'm not quite sure Americans release albums on Tuesdays, but we can expect LCD Soundsystem, Band of Horses and the Black Keys in stores in Ireland either the Friday before or after, depending on record companies. Recent releases (Yeasayer, Vampire Weekend and Midlake) have all been the Friday BEFORE so let's hope this continues too!
