LCD Soundsystem fans got a holiday treat on Thursday, in the form of the band’s first new song in five years.

“Christmas Will Break Your Heart” was posted online on Christmas Eve with a note from the band about the “depressing” tune.

“So, there’s been this depressing Christmas song I’d been singing to myself for the past 8 years, and every year I wouldn’t remember that I wanted to make it until December, which is just too late to actually record and release a Christmas song,” the message said.

LCD Soundsystem parted ways in 2011 and has said it has no plans to reunite, despite rumors to the contrary. According to Thursday’s message, the song was recorded while Al Doyle had a break from touring with Hot Chip.
