Listen :: LCD Soundsystem - Christmas Will Break Your Heart
New York's LCD Soundsystem split in 2011 and despite rumours of their regrouping in 2016, nothing has been confurmed. They have, however, today shared a new song for Christmas.
The depressingly titled 'Christmas Will Break Your Heart', is - according to a post on their Twitter - a song James Murphy has been singing to himself for the last eight years, and now just got to recording it.
Murphy’s message accompanying the track reads:
'so, there’s been this depressing christmas song i’d been singing to myself for the past 8 years, and every year i wouldn’t remember that i wanted to make it until december, which is just too late to actually record and release a christmas song… but this year, al doyle had a short break between hot chip tours where he could be in nyc, and pat and nancy were home, and tyler agreed to fly out from berlin for a few days, so we all recorded this together, reserved a pressing plant slot, and our friend bob weston was available to master it quickly —so that means, less than 2 weeks after we recorded it, there is actually a christmas 7″, which feels like something that could only have happened a very, very long time ago anyway, for the holidays we give you the previous, very long run-on sentence, and this song: “christmas will break your heart”, which is another one of those songs which had about 75 lines of lyrics, though we’ve knocked down to 8 to keep the suicide rate in check. have fun!'
