James Murphy's back

Photo: taken by me.

He promised a more soul-like album, James Murphy, the frontman of Lcd Soundsystem, and finally arrives "Drunk Girls": the first track of the new album. Almost four minutes anticipating the next album, currently untitled, (which will probably be the last for the U.S. band) that Lcd Soundsystem will realease next May 17.
The title may seem just another song about groupies or wild "one night stands" hunting in clubs, but we're talking about James Murphy, so the explanation must be definately different: "The track is about drunk people making funny things but it speaks in fact of all the boys who have registered with me in Los Angeles. Our chef called us 'the girls'. And we were the ladies of the house!".
