LCD Soundsystem have returned with a seven-minute scorcher called “Call the Police”, side A of their new single. (The song is backed with a track called slightly shorter, twinkling ballad called “American Dream”.)
“Call the Police” presumably serves as the lead single from LCD Soundsystem’s upcoming new album. It breaks tradition from the band’s last two LP leads — “North American Scum” from Sound of Silver and “Drunk Girls” from This is Happening — which set their sights on the dancefloor. “Police” finds Murphy and Co. in full, roaring anthem mode.
Listen to the track below. It debuted on BBC Radio 1. It will be released along with “American Dream” at midnight.
