LCD Soundsystem - Drunk Girls - Gone Wild on the Internet

March 29, 2010

LCD SoundsystemA first full helping of the forthcoming third LCD Soundsystem album has been loosed upon the worldwide web in the form of the just-leaked first single "Drunk Girls." The still untitled album will be released May 18 in the U.S. on DFA/Virgin.

Snippets of the new album's "All I Want" can be heard in a new clip documenting the record's sessions at The Manshun in L.A. at http://www.lcdsoundsystem.com/clip4/

In a bit of unplanned synergy, the "Drunk Girls" leak coincides with the announcement of LCD Soundsystem's first New York area shows in eons. The band will play Terminal 5 on May 20 and 21. Tickets can be purchased at:

The above were recorded at The Manshun in Los Angeles and the DFA studios in New York and mixed at DFA from April 2009 through February 2010. TBD was written and produced by James Murphy. Additional mixes were done by Dave Sardy as indicated (*).

The new album is LCD Soundsystem's first full offering of new studio material since 2007's Sound Of Silver, which was named best album of the last decade by NPR, ranked #1 in the 2007 Village Voice Pazz Jop critics poll, landed at #12 and #17 respectively in Rolling Stone and Pitchfork's best albums of the decade, and like its predecessor 2005's LCD Soundsystem received a Grammy nomination for Best Electronic/Dance Album. Sound Of Silver also featured "All My Friends," ranked #4 by Time in its Best Songs of 2007 and named single of the year by Pitchfork, and Entertainment Weekly #8 song of 2007 "Someone Great." In 2008, LCD Soundsystem contributed the track "Big Ideas" to the soundtrack of the movie 21. The bandhas since released the 45:33: The Remixes EP and a cover of Alan Vega's "Bye Bye Bayou," issued to commemorate Record Store Day 2009 and earning LCD its fifth NME single of the week. The album has been preceded by the March 23 release of the soundtrack to Noah Baumbach's Greenberg, which features both composition's from James Murphy's original score for the film and the new LCD Soundsystem song "Oh You (Christmas Blues)."

The record's release will be supported by a world tour beginning with an April 16 penultimate slot at the Coachella festival in Indio CA and continuing with a run of UK/Europe headline dates (several of which have sold out well in advance and necessitated added dates) and further worldwide festival appearances. YACHT and Planning To Rock will support on the UK/Euro headline dates. For a full itinerary, see below and continue to check http://lcdsoundsystem.com/ for additions going forward.
