LCD Soundsystem's return is greater than we ever hoped it could be

05 May 2017, 09:28 | Written by Laurence Day

LCD Soundsystem are back after much too long out of our lives - you can hear new tracks "Call The Police" and "American Dream" now.

Both tracks were played at the band's recent residency at New York's Brooklyn Steel and will appear on their next LP - their first in seven years. The band's James Murphy mixed "American Dream" at DFA Studios and Dave Sardy mixed "Call The Police" in LA.

Yesterday the Murphy revealed a lot about LCD Soundsystem's next steps, including more about the fabled comeback record, which is apparently very close to being completed ("one more vocal and two more mixes to go..."). Murphy also explains that it's difficult to put a timeframe on the record's release but that vinyl copies will be available from Day One. Back in January we were told "soon".

Last summer Murphy & Co. cancelled a bunch of live dates, reportedly to finish up the album, but this is the first proper progress update we've had in some time.

LCD's upcoming record, the follow up to 2010's This Is Happening, was originally announced when the band made their comeback last year and is one of the albums we're most excited about in 2017.

The new tracks follow 2015's festive ballad "Christmas Will Break Your Heart".
