Taked of Pitchfork.
LCD Soundsystem have apparently finished their album. James Murphy made the announcement during their set last night at Sasquatch! Music Festival in George, Washington. A Reddit user recalled Murphy saying that the album is “finally done, feel like we knocked it out of the park on this one.” Video hasn’t surfaced of the moment, but a representative for Sasquatch confirms that Murphy made that announcement. The band has been teasing the follow up to 2010’s This is Happening for a while; in January, Murphy explained that they were “still working on it, but it’ll be done soon.” Pitchfork has reached out to representatives for LCD Soundsystem for further comment.
The new LP will likely feature their recently released singles “Call the Police” and “American Dream,” which were debuted live during LCD Soundsystem’s Brooklyn residency. The band also performed the new songs recently on SNL. LCD Soundsystem is set to headline this year’s Pitchfork Music Festival in July alongside A Tribe Called Quest and Solange.
