Check Out: LCD Soundsystem’s “fashionable” new song

We all recognize the burly James Murphy as exceptionally suave, but we never knew how much he’d push the envelope in that department. Two days ago, in Paris, France no less, Murphy’s indelible electronic act — you might have heard about ’em — LCD Soundystem performed at Yves Saint Laurent’s fashion show. In complete fashion (no pun intended), there were models, there were skimpy outfits, there were snazzy spectators, there were ridiculous outfits, and there was a new song performed by Mr. Murphy.

As Pitchfork reports, “The track apparently is a “re-incarnation or LCD-style interpretation” of experimental composer Peter Gordon and Love of Life Orchestra’s 1979 songs “Beginning of the Heartbreak” and “Don’t Don’t”.” It’s certainly in the LCD-style as this could easily fit on 2007’s Sound of Silver, or perhaps this year’s forthcoming effort. No word yet on whether or not it’s primed for an official release; however, if you want to snag the originals, they’re being re-issued.

It’s probably marked on your calendars already, but the new LCD effort is due out May 17th.
