New James Murphy Single : "We Used to Dance"

LCD Soundsystem front man and mastermind, James Murphy, is assembling the soundtrack for While We're Young - the new Noah Baumbach film, which stars Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Amanda Seyfried, Adam Driver and Beastie Boys' Ad-Rock.

Although no longer (sob), LCD Soundsystem is widely revered by critics as one of the greatest musical groups of our generation - behind only three full-length albums, all of which were incredibly influential in the indie-dance world.

Anytime distinctive frontman James Murphy does anything else, I'm all ears - which is why learning of his soundtrack/score curation for what looks like will be a powerful film snagged my immediate attention. Sure enough, the new soundtrack contribution he's shared is profound; spine-tingling and magical start to finish.

With similar retro, melodic ingredients he used heavily during his LCD days, "We Used To Dance" is a gorgeous stretch of twinkling synth that, through sound, seems to totally nail Baumbach's coined exploration of life and aging.

While We're Young hits theatres next Friday, while the soundtrack is due next Tuesday via Milan Records.

Listen to the dreamy single here.
