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.

Earlier this month, Butler 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.

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

Speaking to NME about his new solo album ‘Generations’, Butler said the coronavirus crisis has created “insurmountable” problems with regards to the band getting together to record a new album.

“Arcade Fire was recording,” he revealed. “Well, we were recording… But now our drummer is in Australia, two of us are in Canada, and the rest are in America. Australia are having a crazy outbreak, the border to Canada is sealed right now… like, Jesus Christ.

“It takes more logistics to get together. It always took a certain amount of logistics, but right now it’s insurmountable.”
