Vulture lets everybody know that James Murphy’s new record has leaked. And what do they think of his new album? “Well, through a third listen: fantastic. We’re already on record as approving of previously leaked “Drunk Girls,” “Dance Yrself Clean,” and “I Can Change,” and, unsurprisingly, there isn’t a dud among the six songs from the album we hadn’t yet heard. The early front-runner, though, would have to be “All I Want,” the latest exercise in Murphy’s proud history of deceivingly uplifting sad-sackery.”
This Is Happening is out 5/17 via DFA/Virgin.
Update: If you haven’t already poked around to download the leak and still want to listen to the new album, you can stream This Is Happening at LCDSoundsystem.com.
