LCD Soundsystem Sign with Columbia Records

LCD Soundsystem Sign with Columbia Records
We're one step closer to a new LCD Soundsystem record. The band have already announced a couple of reunion shows for 2016, and project leader James Murphy has promised that an album is in the works. Now, the group have signed with Columbia Records.

The news was revealed by Columbia boss Rob Stringer [via Billboard] at an industry event. The details of the deal have not been announced, but presumably LCD Soundsystem will be releasing their impending album via Columbia.

Of course, Murphy co-operates a label of his own, DFA Records. Previously, LCD released their albums via DFA in conjunction with larger companies, so it seems likely that they have struck a similar agreement with Columbia.

LCD Soundsystem's first scheduled show will be at Coachella in April. Read Murphy's open letter about the band's reunion here. The group previously went on an indefinite hiatus in 2011 and chronicled their final show at the time with a documentary and box set.
