LCD Soundsytem's James Murphy hails 'Greenberg' OST - video
LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy has described his soundtrack for the film Greenberg is unlike any of his previous material.

The film, which stars Ben Stiller and Rhys Ifans, is released in the UK on Friday (June 11).

In a video interview you can watch on the right of your screen now, Murphy spoke about a " super organic " recording process for the soundtrack.

"We wound up making music that has nothing to do with LCD really," he explained, before adding that he recorded the album just 100 metres away from the film studio.

He added: "We'd watch a scene, I'd walk across the street, write a song with lyrics and everything on piano and drums and bass and bring it over."

Murphy also admitted that despite not usually liking soundtracks, he felt that Greenberg was a project worth getting involved with with.

"I don't like soundtracks because usually I find they just are insulting," he said. "Like, 'Oh, it's a sad moment, and you're too stupid to get it, and the actors suck so bad so I'm gonna have to make it sad sounding'! And I feel like the actors are really good in the movie and the audience isn't gonna be that dumb so I don't have to do things like that."
