American Dream will be LCD Soundsystem’s first new first new album since 2010’s This Is Happening,  after which the group disbanded in 2011.

LCD frontman James Murphy has hinted at a new album since the band reunited for a series of festival appearances in 2016 and gifted us with a peek at two new tracks “Call the Police” and “American Dream,” (both appear on American Dream) which were released this past May and performed on “Saturday Night Live.”

In addition to the album details, LCD Soundsystem has also announced an extensive world tour, including a return residency run at Brooklyn Steel: spanning June 16-24 currently underway and a ten-show homecoming taking place over December 11-23 (see full tour schedule below). 

In between, LCD Soundsystem will circle the globe, playing arenas, theaters and festivals worldwide—including previously announced headline appearances at Pitchfork, Voodoo Music + Arts Experience, among others.
