The first song from the band's new album will be heard next week
Arcade Fire will be premiering their new track ‘Reflektor’ on Monday of next week.
Director Anton Corbijn told The Daily Beast that the band will be unveiling the video for the song on the evening of September 9, saying: “I’m working on a really great song at the moment: Arcade Fire’s new single. The song is called ‘Reflektor’ and you’ll be able to see it Monday evening.”
When asked for more details about the video, he added: “I can’t say much more than that, because it’s all a surprise. You’ll have to watch the TV Monday evening.”
This news follows the cryptic trailer titled ‘Reflektor 9/9/9’, which was posted online yesterday (September 4). The band stated that they would reveal something at 9pm on September 9 with the video again confirming the time and date to viewers. They have previously confirmed they will release a new album on October 29 by replying to a fan on Twitter who wrote “you’re my favourite”.
Earlier this year former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy spoke to NME about the band’s new album, which he is helping to produce. Quizzed on what it sounds like, Murphy said: “It sounds like Arcade Fire in the way that only Arcade Fire sound like Arcade Fire, you know? It’s really fucking epic. Seriously. I mean, I feel at this point like I’m too close to it to really talk it up and do it justice, you know?”
Arcade Fire released their debut album ‘Funeral’ in 2004. This was followed by 2007’s ‘Neon Bible’ and 2010’s ‘The Suburbs’.
