LCD Soundsystem Could Reform To Contribute To Film Soundtrack

Written by Kiel Egging on July 8, 2012

LCD Soundsystem‘s James Murphy has revealed the band might reform to do some recording for a film soundtrack.

The band broke up in February last year, and they are preparing to release a concert film titled Shut Up and Play the Hits on July 18 – which features their last ever concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden.

However, NME reports that Murphy has told the New York Times that a director friend has asked him to reform LCD Soundsystem to record a cover version for a film soundtrack.

Murphy declined to name the director or the film, but said the project is something everyone in the band “seems to want to do”.

Murphy – who was the punk/dance band’s lead singer/songwriter – said he always feels some sort of connection to the band.

“That band was me. Even if I go make a record and it says James Murphy, it’s still me. There’s a line through that stuff that I don’t feel like it’s in my past,” he said.
