The Montreal band first played the new song at a show in Haiti earlier this year but, after performing the track at another gig in New York earlier this week (October 4), it has now been posted by the Arcade Fire Tube account on YouTube.

In July of this year, a statement released on the band's Twitter newsfeed suggested that they will release a new album in 2013. Posting under the Arcade Fire Tube account – the same party responsible for making 'Crucified Again' available on YouTube – they wrote: "BREAKING! New Arcade Fire album coming next year, Mercury Records has confirmed." The official release date or title for the album, however, has yet to be confirmed.

Earlier this year (March 2), the band posted another new track online titled 'Abraham's Daughter', which you can listen to below.The song was used in the Hollywood blockbuster The Hunger Games along with another track, 'Horn Of Plenty', which was written and recorded by the band's Win Butler and Regine Chassagne.

Arcade Fire released their debut album, 'Funeral', in 2004, with their second LP 'Neon Bible' following in 2007. Their third album 'The Suburbs', meanwhile – which was released in August 2010 – proved to be a great critical success after it was voted Best Album at the Shockwaves NME Awards 2011 in addition to winning the 2011 Polaris Music Prize, the Canadian equivalent of the UK's Mercury Music Prize.
