New Arcade Fire album at the end of July? 38 songs?

Let's start though with a tweet from Australian tv/radio station Triple J's music director Richard Kingsmill.
Arcade Fire's new song is called "Suburbs". We should get it week after next. It will be a 12" vinyl only release believe it or not!
Very much doubt Richard Kingsmill would make up about something like that. Looking forward to that Suburbs single like a mad man.

Quickly moving on to a really interesting article Triple J published a bit later on after that above Kingsmill tweet. I'm just gonna copy/paste it so you can digest it in its entirety.
Arcade Fire prep new album

Details have been trickling out about Arcade Fire's ridiculously anticipated third album. The follow-up to Neon Bible doesn't yet have a title, but the band have set the end of July as a tentative release date.

triple j will get hold of a new song from the Canadian band around June 1. It'll reportedly be called "Suburbs" and will initially be released exclusively on 12" vinyl.

The band worked in the studio with long-time producer Nick Launay, and according to sources close to the band, they've got plenty of material to work with - they reportedly recorded and mixed around 38 songs for the album.

So there you have it all people. Inhale-exhale! Inhale-exhale! If it's true the new album is indeed consisting of 38 songs I might just implode or something. Triple album? Could be that those 38 songs are just the number of songs they're choosing from though.

It's good as well to hear Nick Launay is still producing. Have a nice day everybody!

Finally, we are getting some good news! So is it an EP or an album?

Joel said...

The upcoming 12" is a single. Why they've gone for a 12" and not a 7" remains to be seen.
