Last week Arcade Fire teased us by streaming snippets, and now we can finally listen in their entirety the two advance tracks from “The Suburbs” (the album), which was co-produced by the band themselves and Markus Dravs (you can find in his CV Coldplay, James and Bjork). The long player has an official release date: 2nd August in Europe and a day later in the US, through Merge. The most farsighted amongst you can pre-order by clicking here or here.
But the good news is, the 12” supposedly released by June, gets an earlier distribution. From today you can get hold of “The Suburbs/Month Of May” through the usual outlets. The single was introduced by Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1 yesterday evening, and some avid listener recorded the station’s streaming so that you can taste it below the break.
