February 25, 2010 by  

Yes you read correctly, this is not a hoax. James Murphy has announced that he has finished LCD Soundsytem’s third album, the follow-up to 2006’s ‘Sound Of Silver’.

Writing on twitter he said: “mixing last song right now to send to the amazing bob weston to master. meaning, record DONE. i hope people like it.”

And then few days latter he wrote this piece of inspiring prose on the band’s blog: “looks like we added another paris gig. oh, and something else. the fucking record is done.”
