Highly Anticipated: This Is Happening

LCD Soundsystem’s new album This Is Happening, was supposed to be released in March, but was pushed back to May. So now, in about a week, we’ll be able to have it (May 18th).

Sadly, James Murphy has¬†informed the music community that this will be his fourth and last album as LCD Soundsystem. I can’t help but to feel sad that ‘this is happening’. ūüė¶

Read an interview with him from Clash Magazine here. 

ALSO…click here to preview the whole album! I have a feeling I’m going to wear it out this summer!

Track Listing:

1. Dance Yrself Clean (Starts off slow, then surprises you with a ‘BAM!’ into some loud dance music)

2. Drunk Girls (Has some musical elements¬†very similar to¬†“North American Scum”)

3. One Touch

4. All I Want

5. I Can Change* (Reminiscent to the likes of Erasure, Yaz, The Cure, Love & Rockets, etc.)

6. You Wanted a Hit*

7. Pow Pow (sounds like the Talking Heads)

8. Somebody’s Calling Me

9. Home

Holy Ghost! Debut EP

The duo Holy Ghost! is one of the most talked about remixers for the last few months.¬†They’ve released¬†a string of hit remixes for artists such as Cut Copy, Moby, MGMT and Phoenix.

Now they’re just about set to release their EP Static on the Wire (DFA Records). And you can catch a preview of the¬†disco-pop¬†track “Say My Name” here AND go have a listen to their latest remix of LCD Soundsystem’s “Drunk Girls” streaming on their website.

And for the first time ever you’ll be able to see them live, performing as a full live band (guitars, drum kit, keys, the works!) this spring and summer, including US dates opening for LCD.

New LCD Soundsystem Single

Pitchfork’s got it! Click here to go listen to the new single from LCD Soundsystem’s upcoming new album This Is Happening.

When’s the album set for release? MAY 18th!¬†¬†

From Pitchfork:

James Murphy told us that the song is “about drunk people and fun things and the fact that all of the boys of the L.A. mansion we recorded at were called ‘the girls’ by our chef. We were the ladies of the mansion.”
