The new LCD Soundsystem album, due out May 18 on DFA/Virgin has been given the name This Is Happening, according to the DFA homepage. As seen above, the album has also been given some art which features James Murphy dancing sideways. This is great news, as the first single “Drunk Girls” hit the internet last week to tremendous exclaim prompting Pitchfork to give it the moniker of “Best New Track.”
According to Murphy the album is nine songs and 65 minutes long, “which is somewhat embarrassing.” Which I suppose means that most tracks have a five-minute plus play time. LCD has announced their summer tour schedule, which sadly has a big empty hole where Toronto should be, although we are sure that will be rectified soon.
