Arcade Fire release their album 'Reflektor' today (October 28).

One of the most anticipated releases of the year is also one of the most secretive. Strange posters of the 'Reflektor' logo in a 3x3 square started to appear around the world a few months ago, teasing the name of the album and sending people into a frenzy trying to work out the significance of the number 9. The Reflektors, an alias Arcade Fire have used for gigs in the US, recently announced a series of UK dates, including gigs in London and Blackpool.

Meanwhile, New Zealand popstar Lorde releases her debut album 'Pure Heroine'. The album features the Number One single 'Royals'. Speaking previously to NME about her desire to retain control over her music, she said: "Everything that's put out with my name on it should be representative of me and what i want to do as an artist, as opposed to what some dudes in a room think is going to make a lot of money."

Also out today are new albums by Bad Religion, Bored Nothing, Boy George, Chas & Dave, Gesaffelstein, Gyptian, Hawkwind, Islands, Laurel Halo, Linkin Park, Matt Cardle, Sepultura, Union J, White Denim and Wilkinson.
