If it still seems like a dream that LCD Soundsystem is actually coming back, it’s time to wake up and realize that “this is happening,” for real. The James Murphy-led group canceled a string of shows in Asia at the end of last year because they were working on a new album, and they played new material live in Brooklyn last month. This has all lead to tonight, which marks the release of two new LCD Soundsystem songs, “Call The Police” and “American Dream.” You can actually hear the former as part of a BBC Radio 6 program below.
In a lengthy Facebook post on the LCD Soundsystem page this morning, Murphy wrote, “in other news, we’re releasing 2 songs tonight at midnight (and i mean, literally, midnight. wherever you are. so, like, Australia first, and so on and so forth) via the digital things that people use now on their devices.”
