Arcade Fire Announces New Album And Tour, Drops Title Track Produced By Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter

first_imgFor fans of Arcade Fire, today has been a good day. Huge news has been coming from the band, including confirmation of a new album, the announcement of a North American tour, and the official release of brand-new music from the group. Arcade Fire’s newest album, Everything Now, is due out on July 28th via Columbia—the band has not released an album since 2013’s Reflektor. It’s been clear this album has been in the works when considering that the group released “I Give You Power” featuring Mavis Staples to benefit the ACLU back in January and debuted six new songs during an intimate performance in Montreal earlier this month.Listen To Mavis Staples And Arcade Fire’s Live Cover Of Talking Heads’ “Slippery People”To coincide with the announcement of the album, Everything Now, Arcade Fire also dropped the record’s title track. “Everything Now” was co-produced by Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk, who seemed to have lent his disco-esque pop sensibilities to the song. The catchy and upbeat number increasingly gets dramatic throughout its course, with the audio from the crowd at their performance at VooDoo Festival in New Orleans last year sampled toward the end layered with a full chorus. While technically the premiere of the song (and its subsequent music video), “Everything Now” was initially released via an extremely limited batch of 12-inch vinyls sold at Primavera Sound in Spain, ahead of their performance at the festival this weekend. For the other big announcement of the day, Arcade Fire announced that they would be touring North America in the fall following their European tour across the summer. Their first American date is for their already-announced slot at Lollapalooza in Chicago on August 6th. Following this performance, after a month off, the group will hit the road, starting first in Quebec City at Centre Videotron on September 5th. The group hits  New York City’s Madison Square Garden on September 12th before winding their way down the east coast of the United States eventually landing in Texas at the end of the month. Arcade Fire will then return to Canada, this time on the west coast, before hitting a number of dates across California, Washington, Colorado, Missouri, and Nevada, before closing out the United States leg of their tour in St. Paul, Minnesota.
