The new album is LCD  Soundsystem’s  first full offering of new studio material since  2007’s Sound Of  Silver, which was  named best album of  the last decade by NPR, ranked #1 in the 2007 Village  Voice  Pazz & Jop critics poll, landed at #12 and #17 respectively in   Rolling Stone and Pitchfork’s best albums of the  decade, and  like its predecessor 2005’s  LCD Soundsystem received a Grammy  nomination for Best Electronic/Dance  Album.  Sound Of Silver also featured “All My Friends,” ranked #4 by Time in its Best Songs of 2007 and named single of the year by Pitchfork, and Entertainment Weekly #8 song of 2007 “Someone Great.” In 2008, LCD Soundsystem contributed the track “Big Ideas” to the soundtrack of the movie 21.  The band has since released the 45:33: The Remixes EP   and a cover of Alan Vega’s “Bye Bye Bayou,” issued to   commemorate Record Store Day 2009 and earning LCD its fifth NME  single of the week. The album  will be preceded by  the March 23  release of the soundtrack to Noah Baumbach’s   Greenberg, which  features both composition’s from James  Murphy’s  original score for the  film and the new LCD  Soundsystem song “Oh You  (Christmas  Blues).”

The  record’s release will be supported by a  world tour beginning  with an April 16 penultimate slot at the Coachella  festival in  Indio CA and continuing with a run  of  UK/Europe headline   dates (several of which have sold out well in  advance and  necessitated added  dates) and further worldwide festival   appearances.
