Nike-commissioned album too long for creator James Murphy, yet even Yeti dances

45:33“There are 45 minutes and 33 seconds of body music. The idea, to make a long piece of music built around an arc designed for running, appealed to me because it was so anathematic to what you’re typically asked to do as an artist; make easily digestable lumps of music for albums, or the radio, or whatever.” [LCD Soundsystem aka James Murphy]

James Murphy: It’s too long for me. [Pitchfork]

“Yeah it’s only one track, but hey it’s freaking LSD Soundscan. If you learn anything from this genre it’s that longer is better. Nothing beats the longest song of the year. [except of course for TVotR].” [Yeti Don’t Dance]

James Murphy: Yeah [laughs]. I mean, maybe it’s bullshit; maybe it’s not. I don’t know… it could be. [Pitchfork]
