LCD Soundsystem have released two new songs, “Call The Police” and “American Dream“.
The tracks are from the band’s long-awaited comeback record, which is due later this year via Columbia.
They’re the first new material from the band since December 2015’s “Christmas Will Break Your Heart”.
Meanwhile, James Murphy has written a lengthy post on the band’s Facebook page providing an update on the album’s progress (“1 more vocal and 2 more mixes to go”) as well as a detailed explanation of why there’s no firm release date in place yet for the record.
