The yet untitled LCD Soundsystem LP won't be released until 18 May. but over the weekend head man James Murphy leaked the first single for public listening. "Drunk Girls," a hard driving rocker reminiscent of the playfulness of "Daft Punk Is Playing At My House" - and that, of course, is a good thing - was dropped on the Pitchfork website. The lyrics are, um , interesting, reciting the attributes of drunk girls and the drawbacks of drunk boys. And that's rock and roll, kids.
In addition, a portion of another new track, "Pow Pow," was posted as well at Stereogum.
TNOP reported previously that LCD Soundsystem has scored the soundtrack to the new Noah Baumbach film "Greenberg," which opened this weekend nationwide in theaters. And they landed one of the plum spots at Coachella on 16 April.
31 March Update: Paste reports that the new album will be titled This Is Happening. View the cover art here.
