Arcade Fire have discussed their re-recording of ’No Cars Go’.

The track, which appears on new album ’Neon Bible’, originally appeared on the band’s self-titled debut EP from 2003.

Speaking to the Toronto Star Regine Chassagne said: “I always had an orchestra in my mind from the conception of that song. I always heard it like that in my mind.

“But there was no way we could have done it like that back then. I was using the accordion to imitate the strings, but I imagined it with an orchestra. Then it becaome an option and I wanted to do it.”

’Neon Bible’ is set to be released on March 5. The band also embark on a sold-out UK tour.

They will play:

Manchester Apollo (March 8, 9)
Glasgow Barrowlands (11, 12)
London Brixton Academy (14, 15, 16, 17)
