Also today the band played new songs and paid tribute to David Bowie at a surprise Primavera set. The band headline the Barcelona festival this Saturday (June 3).

Arcade Fire’s new album ‘Everything Now’ was produced by the band themselves, along with Daft Punk‘s Thomas Bangalter and Pulp‘s Steve Mackey, with co-production coming from Markus Dravs (Coldplay, Mumfords). It was recorded at Boombox Studios in New Orleans, Sonovox Studios in Montreal, and Gang Recording Studio in Paris.

The album will be released on CD, cassette and vinyl. The vinyl issue of the record will feature 20 different artwork variants, each including the album title in one of 20 different languages.

Speaking to BBC Radio 1’s MistaJam, frontman Win Butler told of their new single ‘Everything Now’: “There’s sort of an everything-nowness to life. I feel like almost every event and everything that happens surrounds you on all sides. It’s trying to capture some of the experiences of being alive now in all its flaws and all its glory.”
