'The Reflektor Tapes + Live at Earls Court' will be released in January 2017
Arcade Fire have announced a new DVD release, which will include a live concert film of a 2014 London show.
The Reflektor Tapes + Live at Earls Court will be released on January 27, 2017 and combines their 2015 movie The Reflektor Tapes and a live film of their Earls Court gig in June 2014.
A clip from the Live at Earls Court DVD has been released and sees the band performing ‘Reflektor’. Watch that below.
Arcade Fire recently told fans that their hotly-anticipated fifth album and the follow-up to ‘Reflektor’ is likely to be released in Spring 2017.
The band recorded their audience singing a melody from a new song during their headline show at the New Orleans festival Voodoo Music + Arts Experience in October.
Butler asked the audience “if they’d like to be on a record.” Met with cheers, he then asked them to repeat a melody, with the intention of it being used in the final recording of a forthcoming new song.
The Montreal-based band played their first headline show in over three months with their slot at the Louisiana festival, with the show also notable for frontman Win Butler saying “Fuck British Petroleum” from the stage in reference to the oil company’s compensation payment to the US state.
Arcade Fire will return for several European festival shows in 2017, including a Isle of Wight Festival headline slot.
