A limited edition 10" vinyl format will accompany the release showcasing an exclusive recording of LCD Soundsystem's 'Dance Yrself Clean', plus 'Fantasy' remixes from Xaphoon Jones and Nicita. The band have also just been announced to perform on popular evening talk show 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' October 2nd which will air across the NBC network.
Following on from their critically acclaimed debut album Secondhand Rapture, 'Fantasy' is a huge rush of cinematic electronic pop, written and produced by the band and mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Amy Winehouse). It follows MS MR's summer anthem 'Think of You' which was B-Listed at Radio 1 and once again won over tastemakers with a blog worthy RAC remix taking the number 1 spots across HypeM charts.

Meanwhile their acclaimed live show'shave taken them around the world including headline shows and festival dates like their recent electric set on the John Peel Stage at Glastonbury, with Prince Harry in attendance, and their sold out show at The Electric Ballroom.
