James Murphy's record label DFA have denied that the former LCD Soundsystem frontman and producer has been working with New Order, Gigwise reports.
Earlier this week, New Order's Bernard Sumner and Tom Chapman told in an interview with Consequence of Sound that they have something of a collaboration with Murphy.
"I can't talk about any of that just yet, but there is news, we're in the process," said Sumner.
Now, DFA have clarified the situation in typically brilliant blunt terms:
"Dear click-baiting websites who all have our email - there is zero truth to the DFA/New Order news. How come no one bothers to check facts?"
Well, these news are quite disappointing. Speaking of James Murphy, though, one can't say he has nothing to be busy with. As well as recently directing his own movie, managing DFA, producing Arcade Fire's "Reflektor," remixing David Bowie, taking his incredble Despacio soundsystem around the world with 2ManyDJs, penning the score for Noah Baumbach's forthcoming movie "While We're Young," attempting to make all of the turnstiles on the NYC subway play a tune and selling his own signature coffee, James Murphy launches a project to turn data from the US Open Tennis tournament into 400 hours of music for some reason.
