Prinzhorn Dance School hit the road, LCD Soundsystem shut up and play the hits

Prinzhorn Dance School hit the road, LCD Soundsystem shut up and play the hits Attentive readers already got word of it: DFA Record‘s very own Prinzhorn Dance School are back with a new album Clay Class, which will be out on James Murphy‘s DFA imprint in February. The Prinzhorn’s first digital only single ‘Happy In Bits’ has received a music video recently, as seen on Electronic Beat’s Videodrome, but let’s watch this again:

Minimalism, so lovely. British musicians Tobin Prinz and Suzi Horn will be bringing their sophomore album on an extended European tour in March 2012, tickets for all dates (see below) are on sale now. Besides ‘Happy In Bits’, DFA Records have already revealed another song off the album: ‘Seed, Crop, Harvest’ (stream below) was released on 7″ vinyl in October 2010. The new Prinzhorn album itself will be out as a download, CD and vinyl on February 12th 2012.

On a different note, James Murphy pulled LCD Soundsystem‘s plug in early 2011, shortly after the release of the band’s album This is Happening. Yesterday saw the rise of a new teaser video for the LCD Soundsystem documentary movie Shut Up and Play the Hits, which covers the events in advance and after the band’s final show at Madison Square Garden.
