LCD Soundsystem are releasing two new songs today. We’ve already heard one of them, “Call the Police,” and “American Dream” will be out at midnight. Presumably, the band will play both songs when they go on Saturday Night Live this weekend, and now frontman James Murphy has teased their performance by appearing in a few promos for the episode.
Chris Pine is hosting, and, as usual, the musical guest spends most of the video standing around while the host banters with an SNL cast member (in this case Kenan Thompson). But Murphy does get in at least one joke, pretending to quit the show when he finds out that Pine is hosting and not Kenan. (Pine also calls him “Mr. Soundsystem,” which is funny.)
