James Murphy considers new LCD Soundsystem song, opens store
James Murphy dropped several interesting tidbits in a recent profile with The New York Times, including news that he’s entertaining the idea of reuniting LCD Soundsystem to record a song for an upcoming film. Murphy wouldn’t specify the name of the film or its director, but said he was asked to cover a song for its soundtrack, which everyone in the group “seems to want to do.”
Murphy also mentioned several other upcoming projects, including “little synth songs” that he’s made “at other people’s studios,” and that he recently recorded with Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Klaxons, and The Julie Ruin. Murphy was also in conversation with producer Scott Rudin about scoring his adaptation of Jonathan Franzen’s novel The Corrections, but HBO declined to pick up the show.
In non-music endeavors, Murphy will soon open a store called House of Good in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where he will sell his own coffee line and custom luggage.
