Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler has said that his band will return to the studio to begin working on a new album following their headline gig at London's Hyde Park tomorrow (July 3).

Speaking to NME Glastonbury in an issue which is on newsstands from today (July 2) or digitally, Butler commented: "We're in a position now where we can have an idea and the people around us to make it happen." He added: "It starts when you get off the road. If I ever feel bored now, it's the best feeling in the world, because I know that's when the next idea is going to come into my brain and it will start again."

Arcade Fire will DJ at London pub The Shacklewell Arms tonight. The band will make an appearance at the small venue in Dalston after Lust For Youth play live earlier in the same night. The band will appear under the name Windows 98.

Frontman Win Butler recently hailed Glastonbury Festival's "purity", saying organisers' corporate stance is similar to that of his band. The Canadians headlined the Pyramid Stage for the first time in their career last week (June 27), taking to the stage on the first night of music at this year's festival.

Speaking to NME after the band had finished their Friday night set, Butler said: "Glastonbury is like the ultimate, in terms of not being a corporate weird thing, it's still got this purity to it which is very in line with how our band thinks about music."

Arcade Fire brought fireworks to what frontman Win Butler described from the stage as one of "the most incredible" of all the "unbelievable" things that have happened to the band in their career. Click here to read a full set report and see the band's setlist from the night.
