@mashable: LCD Soundsystem’s new VR experience lets you join the dance party

Get ready for an LCD Soundsystem listening experience unlike anything else. 

The band announced this week that it has officially released its first virtual reality experience called “Dance Tonite.”   

The project was put together with the help of Google, and is set to the band’s newest album, American Dream.

Viewers are taken through different rooms to see fans dancing —or at least colorful shapes that correspond with the dance moves of real people.  

If using technology like the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift, you can actually add your dance to the experience. 

A “making of” video features the band’s lead singer, James Murphy, who says he doesn’t quite get VR—but he was happy he got involved with the project, which he compared to having a great time at the beach.  

“I don’t want to go to the beach,” he said. “Then you go to the beach, you swim around, you hang out, you have a day off, and it feels kind of great.”

American Dream drops on Sept. 1.
