The new record was recorded live at New York’s Electric Lady Studios
LCD Soundsystem have announced a new live album titled ‘Electric Lady Sessions’ and shared its first track – a cover of Heaven 17’s ‘(We Don’t Need This) Fascist Groove Thang’.
The new album was recorded live at New York’s famous Electric Lady Studios. The LP is yet to have a specific release date, but it is expected to arrive before the end of the year via DFA/Columbia Records.
The first track, a cover of Heaven 17’s ‘(We Don’t Need This) Fascist Groove Thang’, has now been released, and you can listen to it below.
This cover follows the release of the band’s mash-up of Chic’s 1979 hit ‘I Want Your Love’ with their own song ‘Home’ – taken from their 2010 album ‘This Is Happening.’
Starring Sissy Spacek and David Strathairn, the clips follows two scientists as they attempt to develop a teleportation device and embark “on a devastatingly romantic journey of discovery, tragedy and eternal love” – until, crushingly, their work gets disrupted.
Writing in a statement, LCD frontman James Murphy said of the clip: “My goal would be that it works as a video for the song and the song works as a good soundtrack of the film. Rather than a video that serves the song.”
