Arcade Fire Will Release Their 4th Album in 2013

Arcade Fire Twitter account just tweeted this on Friday morning:

 

‘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:

 

‘Filmmaker and director Nile Saulter: ‘Hanging with the Arcade Fire today. Really cool people. New stuff sounds amazing.’ Left to right: Tim, Régine, Will?, Win, Scott Rodger (AF's manager), Richard, Storm Saulter.’

 

Scott Rodger (wearing a black tee here) is Arcade Fire’s manager, the guy on the right is Storm Saulter, Nile Saulter’s brother, and also a filmmaker. But there was no other explanation about what they were looking at… fans commenting below the picture, were happy to know that the new stuff sounded good!

 

This album will be their fourth one, and each of their previous ones, 'Funeral' (2004), 'Neon Bible' (2007), 'The Suburbs' (2010) sounded different and were all loved by their die-hard fans. There is actually not an Arcade Fire concert without 'Wake Up' off 'Funeral in the setlist, but ‘The Suburbs’ was definitively their breakthrough album, making them exposed to a larger audience. Since, they have contributed to a song, ‘Abraham’s Daughter’, for the movie ‘The Hunger Game’, as well as to the original score of the movie with ‘Horn of Plenty’; the soundtrack sold more than 175,000 copies in its first week!

 

Will they be able to top their previous success? It is obvious there is a lot of pressure on Arcade Fire right now, and a lot of expectation for this new album.
