Having just confirmed their presence at next year¡¯s Big Day Out Festival, Arcade Fire has dropped a bit of info on the name of their newest album.
A circular graphic containing the word ¡®Reflektor¡®, has appeared across cites around the world, as well as being posted by fans on Instagram.
A video of the same image was shown at Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago last weekend. And finally, a new website, TheReflektors.com shows the same image.
This comes as news, following Consequence of Sound reported that ¡°at least two different street artists¡± said their work was part of the Arcade Fire campaign. It seems that the mass promotion is all part of the band¡¯s attempts to spread the word on their latest venture. It will be the band¡¯s first album since 2010¡¯s ¡®The Suburbs¡®.
Changing direction this time around, Arcade Fire has employed the help of LCD Soundsystem front-man James Murphy to produce the album. Murphy said that album would sound just as hectic, as previous albums. ¡°It sounds like Arcade Fire in the way that only Arcade Fire sound like, you know? It¡¯s really fucking epic. Seriously. I mean, I feel at this point like I¡¯m too close to it to really talk it up and do it justice, you know?¡±
Rumors of the release date of the album have been splattered around, with October this year being the date.
