Pieces of the Arcade Fire-Reflektor mystery keep coming in. Today on their website, the band has unveiled a 40-second preview of the material they’ll release next week. Check it out below.
Reflektor is out 10/29 via Merge.
It sounds blurry and orange like music from the last Horrors album, which is to say that potentially sets this up as a perfect end of summer / autumnal soundtrack.
Appropriate reference! Everyone should go revisit “Skying” while they wait til 9/9. It came out in August two years ago (end of summer / autumnal soundtrack as michael_ pointed out). The songs have gotten even better.
Seriously, the Horrors. Everyone should listen to them…
…then we can listen to new Arcade Fire. Deal?
Sweet CanCon reference with the “9:30 in Newfoundland”. Feels very CBC.
can’t wait for a north american tour…
perhaps murphy will join them?
in that case, i might cream my shorts
I need more of these guys (and gals) like stat.
I’m starting to think Reflektor is the lead single, that we’ll get 9/9/9. Could be the title track, too. This teaser is the intro to the song/video.
To be honest, though, I don’t care what any of it means. All that matters is new AF next week and a full album next month!
Agree with Patrick on the NA tour and being joined by Murphy. Would be amazing and, for the 1st time, a legit prospect to actually happen.
Arcade Fire just posted the album “Reflektor” on Spotify, with a 15 second clip titled 9pm 9/9. I believe it’s the same audio we heard in the original instagram video we heard, but much clearer audio.
I lied, it’s posted under “Singles.”
Also, I believe that the spotify audio picks up exactly where the audio in this teaser leaves off.
Do the bongos in this remind anyone else of the Rolling Stones song “Sympathy for the Devil”? Because that’s the first thing I thought of…
