Arcade Fire have signed a new record deal, suggesting more new material is on its way shortly.

Having recently teased new music, the Canadian band have now released surprise vinyl single ‘Everything Now’. It’s being sold from a merch stall at Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona, which the band headline this Saturday (June 3).

Now Variety has confirmed that the band have signed a new, two-album record deal with Columbia Records, which is part of Sony Music Entertainment. The band’s last album, 2013’s Grammy-winning ‘Reflektor’, came out on Capitol Records, which is part of a different major label, Universal Music Group.
