LCD Soundsystem share 'Christmas Will Break Your Heart'

Call it a Christmas miracle or call it whatever, but LCD Soundsystem have returned with a festive offering in the form of 'Christmas Will Break Your Heart'.

Their suitably depressing return is the first piece of new material from the group since their demise in 2011, and despite adamant denials from James Murphy that LCD Soundsystem would never return, it looks like that may have been a bluff.

Have a listen to 'Christmas Will Break Your Heart' and read the full bio about the track written by Murphy below.

“so, there’s been this depressing christmas song i’d been singing to myself for the past 8 years, and every year i wouldn’t remember that i wanted to make it until december, which is just too late to actually record and release a christmas song… but this year, al doyle had a short break between hot chip tours where he could be in nyc, and pat and nancy were home, and tyler agreed to fly out from berlin for a few days, so we all recorded this together, reserved a pressing plant slot, and our friend bob weston was available to master it quickly—so that means, less than 2 weeks after we recorded it, there is actually a christmas 7”, which feels like something that could only have happened a very, very long time ago.

anyway, for the holidays we give you the previous, very long run-on sentence, and this song: “christmas will break your heart”, which is another one of those songs which had about 75 lines of lyrics, though we’ve knocked down to 8 to keep the suicide rate in check.

have fun!”
