Arcade Fire announce new album

arcadeCanadian Indie rock band Arcade Fire have announced plans for a new album, a follow up to 2010’s critically acclaimed third album, The Suburbs. Producer James Murphy, with whom the band has worked with previously, hinted that the band has recorded lots of new material and should be releasing it later this year.

 

Murphy praised the band’s quality records, adding, “There’s a lot of them, and they’re mostly self-produced – like, they don’t need a producer in a certain way.I think it’s going to be a really great record, actually. I’m eager to see it come out.”

 

Arcade Fire burst onto the scene in 2004 with their debut album, Funeral, which made it to most top ten album lists that year. Their second album, Neon Bible, also generated quite some interest, but it was The Suburbs that brought them mainstream success.

 

In 20011 it won them the Grammy for Album of the Year , and they hold the distinction of being the only musical group to have won their first and only Grammy in that category. The band, fronted by husband and wife Win Butler and Régine Chassagne, have confirmed through their label Mercury Records that anew single should be released on September 9th.
