It's been more than seven years since LCD Soundsystem released a new album. But over the weekend leader James Murphy promised fans that the follow-up to 2010's This is Happening will be "done soon." After mounting their live comeback last year with a string of well-received reunion shows at music festivals around the globe, the group has been hard at work on their fourth full-length album after signing a deal with Columbia Records.
They even reportedly canceled a string of late 2016 shows in Asia in order to concentrate on the new sessions. In a Facebook chat with fans on Friday (Jan 13), one asked if there was any news on the new album. "Sure. Still working on it, but it'll be done soon," Murphy replied. "Winter tends to mess with my voice, so finishing the thing drags out." (Click here to see the exchange.)
