LCD Sound System Returns With ‘New Body Rhumba’

Noah Baumbach’s extravagant looking adaptation of Don DeLillo’s classic White Noise will include the first new piece of music from LCD Soundsystem in five years, Variety reports.

All that’s known about the song press time is that it’s title is “New Body Rhumba” and that it will be released toward the latter part of 2022. How it will fit into the film — starring Adam Driver, Greta Gerwig, Don Cheadle, Jodie Turner-Smith, and Andre 3000 – remains a secret.

“New Body Rhumba” follows LCD Soundsystem’s 2017 comeback album, American Dream. that followed This Is Happening in 2010 which was touted to be the band’s last in light of their massive run of farewell shows in 2011. Since reuniting in 2016, they’ve released the one album, played live fairly regularly, and dropped a holiday special last year.

In a recent Facebook post, frontman James Murphy outlined the band’s likely future, saying they would likely continue to play shows here and there and drop the occasional single, while forgoing the typical album-tour-break cycle.

“It’s not overwhelming, so I can work on new music and we can all be human beings,” Murphy continued. “Maybe we’ll just play other places next year, moving around to cities we like to play, where we’re wanted, etc.”

Murphy previously provided the scores to Baumbach’s films Greenberg and While We’re Young; the former also featured an at-the-time new LCD Soundsystem song, “Oh You (Christmas Blues).”
