LCD Soundsystem‘s film, Shut Up And Play The Hits, is to be released in the UK this August.

Shot on April 2, 2011, at the band’s farewell show at New York’s Madison Square Garden, the film has been directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace and produced by Lucas Ochoa and Thomas Benski of Pulse Films, the same team that directed and produced the Blur documentary No Distance Left To Run.

Recently, former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy revealed that he is currently writing a novel.

Speaking to GQ, Murphy said that he has considered writing under a pseudonym so his work is “considered fairly”. He said: “I’m writing now, actually. A novel. I’m always making things, but whether they turn into something that I’ll consider making a part of the public world is different. I mean, I write songs every day, but only once in a while do they go out into the public sphere.”

He added: “I’m also dubious because as a person who’s known for something else, something that I wrote might get published before it was ready. Maybe I’ll have to send things in under a pseudonym, just so that they’re considered fairly. Editing is no joke.”
