LCD Soundsystem have announced that their forthcoming album could be named album of the decade.

According to NME, frontman James Murphy is currently working on the follow-up to 2007's Sound Of Silver and joked in a recent interview that if he can get the album in on time, he expects it to measure up as the finest release of the last ten years.

"I'm opening a book on how long it will take after this record's release for people to be saying, 'If this was released five months ago, it would have been the album of the decade'," he said.

Murphy also revealed that the LP, which is composed entirely of instrumentals, is being recorded at "a mansion. It sleeps ten and there's an amazing pool and it felt pretty amazing".

"I'm working on a song called 'Why Do You Hate Music?'," he continued. "Everyone seems to hate music right now, even people who make music. There's a song called 'Love In LA', which has an Eddy Grant, Sly & Robbie feel."

He added: "I'm doing what I set out to do on Sound Of Silver, which is take more chances."
