James Murphy offers update on progress of their new album

LCD Soundsystem have released a new song, which you can listen to above. Yesterday, 4th May, James Murphy heralded the arrival of two new tracks: "In other news, we're releasing two songs tonight at midnight (and I mean, literally, midnight. wherever you are, so, like, australia first, and so on and so forth) via the digital things that people use now on their devices," reads the post.

The tracks are called 'Call The Police' and 'American Dream' and are the two new tracks that the band played at their recent show at Brooklyn Steel, when they requested that fans do not record the performance.

Murphy's Facebook post also says that the band are very nearly done working on their new album, revealing that there is one more vocal and two more mixes to get right. "It's been one of the most enjoyable records to make in my life, if not the most fun ever (I think it is, for sure, the happiest I've ever been making a record.) so it will be sad in some ways to see it leave the house etc., but we're really looking forward to not feeling "late" all the time, and being able to do things like plan a weekend to do something fun, or respond to an email about eating with a friend with something other than "I'm sorry! I'm totally buried in the LP! Check with me in a month?"
