LCD Soundsystem will release a new 12" single through select record stores on Record Store Day’s ‘Vinyl Saturday’, November 7; the digital release will follow on November 24.

The track isn’t taken from the forthcoming LCD Soundsystem album, which is due out in March. Nor does it offer any great clues to how the album will sound: it’s a cover of Alan Vega’s ‘Bye Bye Bayou’, rendered in the jam-style of LCD circa 2003-4, with that signature rolling bass and galloping drum sound that we all know and love, and Murphy doing his inimitable spoken vocal thing over the top. On the flipside of the 12" is an acapella.

The original ‘Bye Bye Bayou’ appeared on Alan Vega’s eponymous 1980 solo debut.

Vinyl Saturday is aimed at promoting independent record stores, and is an extension of Record Store Day proper, which took place back in April. You can find a list of participating stores here.
