LCD Soundsystem Surprise Us With "Christmas Will Break Your Heart"

Remember when LCD Soundsystem claimed a comeback in 2016? Although we haven't heard much since, tonight's Christmas Eve gift may give us some reassurance. To all of our surprise, the band released a brand new, holiday-themed track "Christmas Will Break Your Heart." According to sources, LCD frontman  has had this "depressing Christmas song stuck in his head for the past eight years, only to have gotten it recorded recently. Listen to the song that is both enjoyable as it is upsetting... A note from Murphy states:

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!
