Meanwhile, frontman James Murphy recently revealed that he had been inspired by the late David Bowie to get the band back together.

“I spent a good amount of time with David Bowie, and I was talking about getting the band back together,” said murphy. “He said ‘does it make you uncomfortable?’ I said ‘yeah’, and he said ‘good, it should, you should be uncomfortable’.

“The first thing that popped into my head was ‘what do you know? You don’t know what it’s like to be uncomfortable’. I was imagining that if I was David Bowie, I’d just be walking around flipping everybody off – unless maybe Lou Reed is there. There are literally one or two people where nothing can be said about them. But that’s not who he was ever in his life, he was always making himself uncomfortable. There was such a great feeling of ‘you just don’t know what you are to anybody else’.”

LCD Soundsystem release fourth album ‘American Dream’ on September 1.
