Published Jun 12, 2017LCD Soundsystem recently debuted a pair of new tracks and performed them on Saturday Night Live, but before we get to hear the full new album James Murphy and co. have been promising us, the band are set to revisit a series of old releases.
As Pitchfork reports, LCD Soundsystem, 45:33 and This Is Happening will all be getting the vinyl reissue treatment, with the fresh pressings due out on June 23 via Rhino. The band's 2010 live studio album London Sessions will follow on June 30.
UPDATE (6/12, 6 p.m. EDT): It appears the band are none too pleased about the reissues and have now released a seriously damning statement. "LCD Soundsystem certainly aren't announcing shit, as they had no idea that these were even coming out. Just buy the records from DFA, like you have been able to for years," it reads. Amazingly, LCD's camp goes on to point out that Rhino stated the band were "'one of the freshest sounds on the London underground scene in the early 2000s' so that shows how seriously anyone should take it." Of course, NYC-based LCD Soundsystem are NOT from London.
Meanwhile, details of the band's forthcoming new record still haven't been officially announced. Murphy updated fans on Facebook last month, assuring them that the band was officially "done with the record" and teasing a six-week wait until its release.
Last month, he also revealed that the upcoming album was one of the most "enjoyable records" he's ever made, saying: "I think it is, for sure, the happiest I've ever been making a record."
So far, we've heard "American Dream" and "Call the Police," which are expected to appear on the upcoming LP.
At least now we've got a handful of impending reissues to help ease the wait time — which, if Murphy's math checks out, should be less than a month now.
