Coachella, Sasquatch, Bonnaroo, Pitchfork Festival Dates Confirmed
UK/Euro Headline Dates Continue To Sell Out
LCD Soundsystem has confirmed May 18 as the U.S release date of its as yet untitled third album. The record will be released on DFA/Virgin in the U.S. and will consist of the following songs:
| James Murphy :: LCD Soundsystem|
Dance Yrself Clean
Drunk Girls *
All I Want
Somebody's Calling Me *
What You Need
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. The album 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 band has 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 will be 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 U.K./Europe headline dates (several of which have sold out well in advance and necessitated added dates) and further worldwide festival appearances.
