Arcade Fire isn’t a new band by any means. They got to be pretty popular so chances are, you’ve heard at least one of their albums. As for myself, I was pretty obsessed with Funeral for a while. I listened to Crown of Love (one of the best bittersweet love songs ever) and Neighbourhood # 1 (Tunnels) (a favourite first thing in the morning for the subway) pretty relentlessly after buying the album.
In any case, I just heard the first single off their upcoming album this morning and I had to share because it’s pretty enjoyable.
The single is officially being released on 6/1 and the album 8/2 or 8/3, depending on your location.
