The creatively restless James Murphy is turning from the studio to the stage with an upcoming Broadway restaging of an influential 1978 drama starring real-life married couple Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz. The DFA label head is crafting new music for Betrayal, a widely-acclaimed masterpiece from late Nobel Prize-winner Harold Pinter.

If you're intrigued by the idea of James Bond moving to music created by LCD Soundsystem's main man in a play about an extramarital affair, you won't have to wait long to see how that plays out—it debuts in New York on October 27.
