LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy Probably Producing Next Arcade Fire Album

LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy Probably Producing Next Arcade Fire Album

When James Murphy dissolved LCD Soundsystem last year after three albums and 10 years, few thought he would just go into exile and retire. After hinting at writing a novel and selling coffee, a recent interview with BBC's Zane Lowe suggests that the 42-year-old may be—wait for it—producing Arcade Fire's next album.

"What can you tell us about what you're doing?," asked Lowe. "Can you talk about the AF record? Is that on the cards?"

"No, no," replied Murphy. "That's not something I can talk about yet. The Abercrombie & Fitch record."

Yet. As in, it's when, not if, right?!

Murphy's hinted at this indie rock wet dream before. In 2010, the Coolest Man Ever told Spin (via Pitchfork): "There are other things I haven't been able to do because of [LCD Soundsystem]. Twice, I couldn't make an Arcade Fire record. I couldn't make a Spoon record. I couldn't work with John Cale or Devo. The plan was for this band to be part of my life, then it started to be the whole of my life."

Last time we saw Murphy and Arcade Fire together was at LCD's farewell show at Madison Square Garden, when the group backed up Murphy on "North American Scum." The band has been mum on who's producing their next album, but we'll keep you updated as soon as we hear. In the meantime, take a listen to the interview snippet below.
