James Murphy on ‘American Dream:’ ‘it’s the best I’ve felt about an LCD LP ever’
LCD Soundsystem’s highly-anticipated revival record American Dream is just two weeks away from its long awaited release. In his classic-nervous-yet-celebratory-fashion frontman James Murphy has taken to Facebook to address some of the record’s final matters. First confirming— that yes— that is indeed the cover, despite others hoping a more exciting unveiling was around the corner. Murphy also shared that anyone who purchased a ticket to one of the band’s upcoming tour dates will receive a free American Dream CD, and if that’s too uncool, they also have the option to pay slightly and receive a vinyl copy instead. But the best part of the post was when Murphy commented on the actual music, remarking, “some of you may hate it, but i’m very proud of it. it’s the best i’ve felt about an LCD LP ever. which could totally spell disaster.” Read the full statement below.
