Update: Arcade Fire reveal new LP, single Everything Now
Guess I should have known this would happen. After yesterday's news that the band was signing with Columbia, a new single and details about their 5th LP, Everything Now, have surfaced.
The rumored title "Infinite Content" turns out to be the name for their international tour, not the album itself. Instead, the album shares its name with the new single and video that launched earlier today. You can watch/listen above. The production team this time around involves Daft Punk member Thomas Bangalter, a pairing reminiscent of the James Murphy-helmed Reflektor. The album is due out on July 28th.
The single is dance-y but also recalls the band's more anthemic, earlier work, all while introducing a few new sounds to their arsenal. It's quality stuff.
