Published Oct 22, 2009As previously reported, LCD Soundsystem recently covered "Bye Bye Bayou," a track by Suicide front-man Alan Vega, for an upcoming single. The release is set to come out on twelve-inch as part of Record Store Day's Vinyl Saturday on November 7. But due to the inevitable leak, James Murphy and the band have decided to let fans grab the track as a free digital download a bit early.
On LCD's website, the band explain:
"Well, bye, bye bayou totally leaked everywhere, which shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone, since anything that exists is essentially all over the internet in five minutes - but it wasn't actually supposed to come out until november 7th (that indie store vinyl day), so we've asked and parlophone have given us 20,000 free downloads to give away to the first, well, 20,000 people. one per customer, or downloader, or avatar or whatever."
So, yeah, if you want that track, which will cost you an email address, you better get on it and grab it here. There are only 20,000 of these things, guys!
And just in case you forgot, LCD Soundsystem are planning to release their next full-length in March 2010.
