LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy has confirmed that a DVD release of his band's final concert at Madison Square Garden is in the works. Murphy revealed his DVD plans when responding to a fan question on the LCD Soundsystem Facebook page. According to Murphy, the show was filmed and recorded, and the band's footage and audio is superior to what was streamed live on Pitchfork. Murphy says that the footage needs to be edited and that he will personally mix the music.

In the days immediately after the show, footage from Pitchfork's stream surfaced on YouTube, but Murphy has since had all of it removed. A fair amount of amateur footage remains online, though at this point fans ought to just wait a little while for the official disc to either relive the night or get a glimpse of the band in action one last time.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
