‘BREAKING! New Arcade Fire album coming next year, Mercury Records has confirmed.’
So we can be sure that the Montréal band is preparing a new album for 2013, following their 2010 and critically acclaimed, ‘The Suburbs’, which made them win numerous awards, including the 2011 Grammy for Album of the Year, the 2011 Juno Award for Album of the Year, and the 2011 Brit Award for Best International Album.
The above picture, showing the band apparently having a good time, was posted on their Facebook, about a month ago with the following comment:
distinct and wondrous without being obvious or obnoxious
except for the title track the songs are on vacation
simultaneously self-effacing and egomaniacs
essentially a disco remix of “Rocket Man” featuring one of the the UK’s biggest stars…
“I literally really need you to jump up and down”
Friday night might kill us but Thursday evening is a blast
it just isn’t the triumph she needed after six years
an impressive sonic ride.
a high-spirited Post Pandemic anthem
