As you’ve surely heard by now, “Reflektor” serves as the lead single to the band’s new album of the same name. The single does in fact feature David Bowie on vocals and was produced by former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy. It’s available to purchase digitally beginning today and will be available on 12″ vinyl at select record stores. Meanwhile, the album will arrive on October 29th, and will be supported with an appearance on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live.
