Exciting news! Since they announced on the 23rd of February that their new album had been completed, the world has been on hold waiting to hear the punk vibe of “This is Happening”. It’ll be released on the 17th of May, just a month before the Sonar erupts into Barcelona, together with James Murphy and his band. It has been said that this is the last album LCD Soundsystems, whose dance beat set over a cool electronic base has one them two Grammy awards already, will put out, so for all you fans out there, this Sonar might just be the best occasion to hear them. The single “Drunk Girls” has already been released with its official video, but the rest of the album’s songs, with names like “Dance Yrself Clean”, “You wanted a Hit” and “Pow Pow” have not, despite the group performing at two secret gigs in New York.
They will get up on stage on Friday, the 18th of June, for the Night Sonar. If you’ve seen the post-punk gem of a video released for Drunk Girls, then you’ll agree with us that to watch the new album sung live just a month after its release is a well worth.
