In an interview with a Mojo Magazine James Murphy breaks his own news about a new LCD Soundsystem album coming out sometime in the first half of next year.
“We’ve been recording in a mansion. It sleeps 10 and there’s an amazing pool and it felt pretty amazing. We decided, let’s make Los Angeles an imaginary Los Angeles of the soul from 1973. Everyone had to wear white all the time, so it’s like some sort of creepy fucking cult and we’d go to parties, 10 people in a mini-van all in white, and we’d have enough of an impact on how Los Angels operated. You leave a dent.”
“I’m working on a song called ‘Why Do You Hate Music?’. Everyone seems to hate music right now, even people who make music. There’s a song called ‘Love In LA’, which has an Eddy Grant, Sly & Robbie feel. I’m doing what I set out to do on Sound of Silver, which is take more chances.”
The album is some distance from being finished however, as it’s currently “just a bunch of sprawling instrumentals”.
In related news I have been thinking about painting a picture of the Haunted Mansion they have at Disneyland but then I remembered I am a no talent hack and went back to blogging.
