LCD Soundsystem se disolvió en 2011 y, desde entonces, son innumerables los rumores que han surgido sobre una posible vuelta a los escenarios de la banda. El día 24 de diciembre publicaron “Christmas Will Break Your Heart”, primer tema desde que sacaron «This Is Happening» en 2010 y que, según la nota dejada en twitter por la banda, James Murphy había estado canturreando para sí mismo durante los últimos ochos años. Finalmente pudo reunir a Al Doyle -que se encontraba de gira con Hot Chip-, a Pat Mahoney y Nancy Whang, y a Tyler Pope, que voló desde Berlín para reunirse con ellos y grabar el villancico.
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.
