LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy is set to return to the live scene later in 2011, having 'retired' his band earlier this month.

LCD played their final gig at New York's Madison Square Garden on April 3, but it seems that Murphy hasn't hung up his performing boots for good. He's now set for a DJ appearance at the Sonar festival in Barcelona this summer.

The New Yorker one of a slew of new additions to the Spanish festival bill, along with Four Tet and Dizzee Rascal.

Sonar takes place on June 16-18 – MIA, Aphex Twin and The Human League are among the other acts on the bill.

See Sonar.es for more information.
