Following reports in the US that Arcade Fire are set to release their new album in May next year, a spokesperson for the band has told NME.COM that the record is in fact likely to be released in the second half of 2010.

It was claimed that Montreal band were planning to release the first single from the album early next year followed by the full-length release in May, and were considering new live shows.

However, their spokesperson told NME.COM that the band have "no scheduled release date" for the album and no live shows are booked. They said the album would be "out at some point in 2010, more likely to be the second half".

As well as reportedly considering options for their own live shows, it had been claimed that the band are likely to headline US festivals next summer.

Arcade Fire have been working on their third album with Markus Dravs, who produced their last release 'Neon Bible', although their spokesperson clarified the situation, explaining that Dravs is one of three engineers working on the project.
