LCD Soundsystem preview the launch of their new VR experience, ‘Dance Tonite’ [Watch]
LCD Soundsystem‘s forthcoming comeback album is proving to be one of the most hotly-anticipated electronic outputs of the year. Following a Columbia Records co-sign last year, the band has returned with top-notch live performances, and now fans are eagerly awaiting the group’s inbound studio record, which according to James Murphy, is currently being pressed to wax as of this writing. Congruent with the album’s summer rollout, Murphy and company are planning the wide scale launch of their new virtual reality experience, due sometime this summer.
The new VR experience was recently debuted at Google’s three-day I/O developer’s conference along with a live streamed performance from LCD at the event as well. Immersive individual dance parties were soundtracked by a new tune from the group’s upcoming album called, “Tonite.” The new track and accompanying music video are due later this summer as well, presumably ahead of the album’s full release.
A visit to tonight.dance confirms the new VR experience launch. LCD Soundsystem’s follow up to This Is Happening could land as soon as mid-July, though fans may be lucky enough to digitally dance themselves clean before the album officially hits shelves. Preview clips of the new VR experience below:
