Former LCD Soundsystem frontman is not recording with Manchester band
DFA Records have denied reports that New Order are recording with former LCD Soundsystem man James Murphy.
Bernard Sumner and Tom Chapman from the Manchester band suggested in a new interview that the group could be set to work with the producer in the near future. However, a tweet sent earlier today (September 1) by the New York-based label made it clear that is not the case.
Dear click-baiting websites who all have our email – there is zero truth to the DFA/New Order news. How come no one bothers to check facts?✅

Originally speaking to Consequence Of Sound, Sumner responded to a question asking if they would consider working with Murphy. He said: “I can’t talk about any of that just yet, but there is news, we’re in the process.”
Meanwhile, Sumner recently confirmed details of his forthcoming autobiography. Chapter And Verse (New Order, Joy Division And Me) will be published by Transworld on September 25. It had been announced in June 2013 that Sumner had signed a deal to publish his memoirs.
