LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy Is Writing A Novel

Written by Alex Langlands on April 12, 2012

Having just left our shores last month after he headlined his own DFA Records stage at this year’s instalment of the incredible Future Music Festival, LCD Soundsystem’s frontman James Murphy has announced that he will be writing a novel. Not to be mixed up with an autobiography, Murphy will be writing a piece of fiction. The topic or genre is not yet known; bets on a Hugh Grant style of novel.

In an expansive interview with GQ Magazine, spanning from what makes a good coffee to fatherly advice, Murphy told the magazine that he was writing his own novel, saying, “I’m writing now, actually. A novel. I’m always making things, but whether they turn into something that I’ll consider making a part of the public world is different. I mean, I write songs every day, but only once in a while do they go out into the public sphere.”

He continued to tell GQ,”I’m also dubious because as a person who’s known for something else, something that I wrote might get published before it was ready. Maybe I’ll have to send things in under a pseudonym, just so that they’re considered fairly. Editing is no joke.”

After their famous final show at Madison Square Garden, the band calmly went their separate ways, with all members agreeing that enough was enough. In celebration of their career and final tour, which included the 2011 Big Day Out Festival, the band released a documentary ‘Shut Up And Play The Hits’, which will be aired at this year’s Vivid Live Festival.
