In an anniversary piece celebrating the tenth anniversary of ‘The Suburbs’, NME’s Jordan Basset said: “Arcade Fire’s time capsule third album…is the sound of whispers from the past creeping into your present, of carefree days gone by reminding you of the good times to come, of nostalgia helping you make sense of the more difficult now.

“And that’s why, in this strangest of times, we need it more than ever.”

Last week (July 31), Butler and Chassagne took part in a charity livestream gig.

The stream came in aid of Salesforce’s Leading Through Change video series, and also saw Chassagne discussing her own foundation, KANPE, which helps vulnerable communities in Haiti.

Earlier this month, Butler also shared a snippet of a new Arcade Fire song along with a “message of unity”. It follows Butler sharing a number of snippets of new music from the Canadian band back in April.

Arcade Fire last released an album with 2017’s ‘Everything Now’, which NME called an “emphatic return” to the “lofty standards” of their early work.

The band’s Will Butler, meanwhile, recently gave an update on the band’s upcoming sixth album.
