LCD Soundsystem titles new album: This Is Happening

on March 30, 2010, 1:19pm

The final and most important details regarding LCD Soundsystem‘s third, and perhaps final, album are here. According to DFA Records, James Murphy decided to title his tentative curtain call, This Is Happening. As you can see to the right, the cover is a polished decadent throwback. The art historians over at Pitchfork claim it’s “Robert Longo-inspired.” Whatever it is, it’s a little more inviting than the artwork for 2007’s Sound of Silver.

LCD plans to tour just about everywhere this year, so see ’em while you can. For now, you can hear the new single “Drunk Girls” below. If you liked “Daft Punk is Playing My House”, it’s hard not to at least bobble along to this, but please, oh please, oh please let there be better songs on the way. We can only ignore mediocrity for so long.

DFA Records releases This Is Happening on May 18th.
