Arcade Fire's Win Butler says it's more than feasible that the band could return to the live and record-releasing scene sooner than fans expect.

In an interview that you can read in this week's issue of NME (available to buy nationwide from June 24), the frontman revealed that Arcade Fire have now reconvened to start work on the follow up to 'Neon Bible' – and that it could be released quicker than people think.

"None of us want to take three years making a record," Butler explained. "It could be that we'll play live [soon] and maybe we'll end up bashing it [another album] out fast. We're in the middle of writing, things are coming together, it's a great feeling."

Butler added that he's itching to get back to playing gigs.

"If you had asked me [about playing live] six months ago I'd be like 'No, I'm good'," he said. "But now I go to a gig and I get the little…I can imagine being on that stage. It's the step before you actually go and do it."

Pick up this week's issue of NME (out across the UK from June 24) to read the full interview with Butler concerning Arcade Fire's future plans.
