LISTEN: James Murphy Shares Whimsical New Track “We Used To Dance”

While We're Young's soundtrack is out March 24 via Milan Records

Yesterday, former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy shared a brand-new song from the soundtrack for the upcoming Noah Baumbach film While We’re Young, which he scored. This latest taste of the score is a dreamy, synth-heavy instrumental track that seamlessly channels Brian Eno, complete with a title that could sum up Murphy’s professional career, “We Used To Dance.” Listen to it on SoundCloud here.

Murphy—who also collaborated with Baumbach on his last film Greenberg—picked songs from HAIM, Paul McCartney, and A Tribe Called Quest for the While We’re Young soundtrack. The film, which stars Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts, is set for release on March 27.

Check out the soundtrack’s cover art and full tracklist below.
