LCD Soundsystem will cease to happen after 'This Is Happening'
James Murphy, the mastermind behind LCD Soundsystem, has alluded to wanting to work on other, new projects besides his band before, but it sounds like his efforts under that name are done altogether after the May 18 release "This Is Happening" and subsequent promotion efforts on tour.
Murphy, 40, told British newspaper The Sun that three records is enough to keep his fame at handleable levels.
"I guess there's a million reasons to keep going with the band. It would be a good career choice because we're in a good position - but it was never about that for me. I don't want to be wildly famous. I like being respected and appreciated but I was never in a band to be a pop star," Murphy said. "[I want to] just go as hard as I can for the next year and a half and then do something else... I feel we've done the best we can with LCD - and I don't feel there's quite as much to prove. I want to find another challenge for myself."
LCD -- under the famed DFA label which Murphy co-founded -- released 2007's critically acclaimed "Sound of Silver" and 2005's self-titled set; even before then, Murphy unleashed a number of dance party singles including "Losing My Edge" from 2002 and "Daft Punk Is Playing at My House." Murphy recently worked on the score to Ben Stiller-starring flick "Greenberg," has helped produce and engineer on others' records and helps run DJ-centered New York dance party Sh*t Robot.
