Santa, take note: LCD Soundsystem plans on issuing a retrospective photobook in December through powerHouse Books. Running on the heels of their recent documentary, Shut Up and Play the Hits, the 216-page hardcover book will sport hundreds of photos by Ruvan Wijesooriya, interspersed with album artwork, band interviews, and an introduction by James Murphy.

“All of Ruvan’s pictures remind me of that feeling: that you’re geographically fucked, and it’s all happening right now, somewhere else, without you,” Murphy wrote in a statement. “There’s an enormous amount of intimacy in them, and promise, and intrusion.”

Photos were snapped all across various locations, including Hyde Park in London, New York City, Coachella, Rick Rubin’s recording mansion in the Hollywood Hills, Sweden’s Way Out West, Miami’s Art Basel, and many more. To preview some of Wijesooriya’s work, visit the publishing house’s website, where you can also pre-order the book for $29.95.
