Murphy surprised the music world last year when he announced that LCD Soundsystem would be disbanding at what may be considered to be the pinnacle of their career. Shut Up and Play the Hits was directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace and produced by Lucas Ochoa and Thomas Benski of Pulse Films, who directed and produced the Grammy nominated Blur documentary, Nowhere Left to Run, and James Murphy. The film’s executive producer is Christine Vachon (I’m Not There, Far From Heaven, Boys Don’t Cry, One Hour Photo, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, etc.), with former LCD manager Keith Wood and The Creators Project.
