Arcade Fire have shared their new single ‘Everything Now’, the title-track from their upcoming fifth album.
It’s the first track to be released from their new album of the same name, which will be released on July 28. It’s the follow-up to 2013’s ‘Reflektor’.
Frontman Win Butler told BBC Radio 1’s MistaJam of the song: “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.”
According to a press release, the record was produced by Arcade Fire 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.
