LCD Soundsystem: 'We're making the album of the decade - but it's late'
James Murphy speaks about follow-up to 'Sound Of Silver'
LCD Soundsystem claim their forthcoming album would have been the album of this decade - if it was released in time.
James Murphy is currently working on the follow-up to 2007's 'Sound Of Silver', and joked that if he had got his act together he could have stolen all the plaudits for the last 10 years.
"I'm opening a book on how long it will take after this record's release for people to be saying 'If this was released five months ago, it would have been the album of the decade...'," he told Mojo.
Currently the album - which is being recorded at "a mansion. It sleeps ten and there's an amazing pool and it felt pretty amazing" - is all instrumental, but Murphy intends for it carry a some real messages by the time he's finished.
"I'm working on a song called 'Why Do You Hate Music?'. Everyone seems to hate music right now, even people who make music," he explained. "There's a song called 'Love In LA', which has an Eddy Grant, Sly & Robbie feel.”
He added: "I'm doing what I set out to do on 'Sound Of Silver', which is take more chances."
