On the day they released their first new song in five years, LCD Soundsystem have also announced a second 20-night residency in New York.

Last year, the band made their long-awaited live return, playing 17 gigs of a 20-night residency at Brooklyn Steel before the last three were cancelled due to rising COVID cases.

From November 18 this year, the band will return to Brooklyn to play Brooklyn Steel for 20 more nights, with the gigs running through until December 17.

The announcement of the new residency comes alongside the release of ‘New Body Rhumba’, the band’s first new song in five years.

The song was created for the soundtrack of White Noisean upcoming film directed by Noah Baumbach. The Netflix title — which stars Adam Diver and Greta Gerwig — is a film adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel of the same name, and will feature music composed by Danny Elfman.

‘New Body Rhumba’ marks the band’s first original material since the 2017 comeback album ‘American Dream’, which itself arrived after a seven-year hiatus following 2010’s ‘This Is Happening’.

The new song was announced in August of this year, when Variety reported that Netflix had recruited the band for White Noise. Prior to that, Murphy teased in March that the band would be releasing “just singles for a while, so there isn’t some ‘album panic’”.
