"Bye Bye Bayou" is the first new music from LCD Soundsystem since the release of "Sound of Silver," and it is a stunning re-introduction of the band to the world. The track is a cover of an Alan Vega (Suicide) song from his 1981 debut album. "Bye Bye Bayou" is 8+ minutes of classic LCD Soundsystem, deep soulful grooves that will appeal to fans and non-fans alike and will whet the appetite for fans dying for LCD's upcoming third album to be released in March 2010.
