James Murphy Hints at New LCD Soundsystem Song, Recordings with Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Klaxons
Published Jul 06, 2012On July 18, the concert film Shut Up and Play the Hits documenting LCD Soundsystem's last show will play for one night only at select venues. While we're meant to believe this is the end of the band for good, James Murphy has already revealed plans for the band to re-enter the studio.
In a recent New York Times profile [via Consequence of Sound], Murphy explained that the band have been approached to record a cover for the soundtrack of an upcoming film. While he wouldn't revealed any details, Murphy explained that the project is something that the rest of the band "seems to want to do."
Along with a potential LCD Soundsystem recording, the profile explains that Murphy's at work on an album of "little synth songs" that he's made "at other people's studios," along with recent recordings with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Klaxons and the Julie Ruin.
Aside from all that studio work, Murphy is about to opened a new store called House of Good in Williamsburg. He plans to sell custom luggage and his own line of coffee.
On top of all that, on July 17, the twelve-inch of LCD Soundsystem covering Carl Craig's classic "Throw" will be repressed in an edition of 1,000 by DFA Records.
