's Richard Reed Parry
has said he expects James Murphy
to reform LCD Soundsystem
in the future, NME
Murphy has worked with Arcade Fire on the band's new studio album "Reflektor
," due for release on October 28. Speaking about his time in the studio with Murphy to the Sun
, Parry was full of praise for LCD Soundsystem, who Murphy put into retirement in 2011.
"We have tried to work with Murphy before but we could never match our diaries,"
Parry says. "But this time the schedules worked. LCD Soundsystem and Arcade Fire have toured together lots of times. We have always admired each other's band - LCD are our favourite band ever. I'd be shocked if James doesn't reform them one day. They are too good not to."
Meanwhile, frontman Win Butler
discussed being in the recording studio with David Bowie
, who contributed vocals to new single "Reflektor
." "We met early on and we've kept in touch over the year,"
explains Buter. "It's like meeting a mentor, someone who has navigated pop and experimental stuff. There are very few role models you can point to who have success like that. Many artists get lost chasing success and end up killing what brought them success in the first place."
Recalling the time they spent recording with Bowie in America, he continues: "What was cool was that we were mixing at Electric Lady studios in New York. The line he does on 'Reflektor' echoes the line he does on 'Fame,' the song he recorded in the very same studio with John Lennon. So he showed up and said, 'The last time I was here I was recording with John Lennon.' And we looked at each other to say, 'And here you are recording with Arcade Fire.'"
The band already performed four new songs
," "Here Comes the Night Time
," "Normal Person
" and "Afterlife
" to during their NBC
concert special "Here Comes the Night Time
" earlier this year.
The band are confirmed to perform at the annual Bridge School Charity show alongside Queens of the Stone Age
, Tom Waits
and My Morning Jacket
on October 26.
Arcade Fire will release their new album 'Reflektor' on October 28.
