New music from Arcade Fire is reportedly set for release on September 9.

Revolt TV cites sources close to the band, saying a brand new track will be out this autumn. However, September 9 is not the release date of a new album, which will be the follow up to 2010's 'The Suburbs'.

Meanwhile, former LCD Soundsystem leader James Murphy recently gave an update on the new Arcade Fire album. Murphy, who has helped to produce the record, told the Daily Star: "The album is going great. I'm too in the middle of it to know which way it will go in the end. But it's going to be a fantastic record."

In an interview with MusicWeek late last year, the band's manager Scott Rodger confirmed that Arcade Fire were going into the studio with Murphy to work on their fourth album. He said at the time: "They're in with James Murphy on three or so songs, plus Markus Dravs who is a long-time collaborator. They write too many songs - that's a good problem to have. There's around 35 songs with Arcade Fire, two albums'-worth for sure."

Murphy clarified his role on the album saying: "They are so good they could produce themselves, so my role in the band depends on the song," he explained. "Sometimes I'm going around making suggestions and playing instruments, other times I'm just helping the arrangements. We feel like part of each other's bands because we toured a lot together over the years."
