A very reliable and hard-to-please source of mine recently had a chance to drop by the studio and hear early versions of songs from Arcade Fire’s forthcoming third LP, and he promised to give me a sense of what to expect. These are some phrases he used:
“More upbeat than Neon Bible”
“There’s a lot of Neil Young in Win’s voice”
“If these tracks were any indication, the album will be very, very good”
There you have it. Is it true? Who knows, but this is enough to get me excited! You know, as if I wasn't already... Neil Young huh? WOW!
