Watch LCD Soundsystem Play Two New Songs on <i>SNL</i>

LCD Soundsystem  visited Saturday Night Live last night to perform the two new songs they released this week, “Call the Police” and “American Dream.”

The band’s new record is apparently in the final stages. “Seriously almost done with the LP,” James Murphy wrote on Facebook May 4. It will be their first full-length studio release since 2010’s “This Is Happening,” after which Murphy and Co. announced the end of the band—only to return to the stage this year with a triumphant five-night residency at Brooklyn Steel in April.

Here’s “American Dream”:

Here’s “Call the Police”:

And here, from the bottomless Paste Cloud, is an incredible, exclusive live performance of “New York I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down” captured in 2007, just after the release of Sound of Silver.
