Arcade Fire could be set to release a new song later this week. Update: The band have since released a single called ‘Everything Now’ on vinyl.
In January, the Canadian group unveiled their first new track in two years, an anti-Trump Mavis Staples collaboration called ‘I Give You Power’. They were rumoured to be releasing their new album in April, but that failed to surface.
Now, as Stereogum points out, Vancouver radio station 102.7 The Peak recently suggested that the band would be releasing a new single this week (Friday, June 2) in a since-deleted tweet. The post had read: “Hold onto your bobble heads, @arcadefire have promised us a new tune on Friday!”
Arcade Fire have since taken to Twitter to post what appears to be new artwork, along with the caption: “Stay tuned for Infinite Content”. See that post beneath.

It was previously announced that they will be supported by The Kooks during the European tour.
Earlier this month, the band reportedly debuted six new tracks at a secret show.
The show reportedly took place at a small space on Parthenais Street in Montreal, with the Montreal Gazette reporting that all attendees were required to check their phones in at the door.
The set lasted over an hour, while the six new songs performed “exhibited pop and electronic influences in the vein of [last album] ‘Reflektor’”, according to one lucky attendee.
