LCD Soundsystem just released a new Christmas song


Well it appears some form of LCD Soundsystem reunion is true. James Murphy got the band back together to record a Christmas song that’s been floating around his head for the last eight years. It’s just been released on iTunes, 7″ and the Youtube version below.

You can buy the 7″, limited to 1000 copies, 2 per person, right now on the DFA store.

The rumours of a reunion tour grow louder.

Says Murphy:

so, there’s been this depressing christmas song i’d been singing to myself for the past 8 years, and every year i wouldn’t remember that i wanted to make it until december, which is just too late to actually record and release a christmas song… but this year, al doyle had a short break between hot chip tours where he could be in nyc, and pat and nancy were home, and tyler agreed to fly out from berlin for a few days, so we all recorded this together, reserved a pressing plant slot, and our friend bob weston was available to master it quickly—so that means, less than 2 weeks after we recorded it, there is actually a christmas 7″, which feels like something that could only have happened a very, very long time ago.
anyway, for the holidays we give you the previous, very long run-on sentence, and this song: “christmas will break your heart”, which is another one of those songs which had about 75 lines of lyrics, though we’ve knocked down to 8 to keep the suicide rate in check.
have fun!
