Arcade Fire’s Next Album May be Called ‘Reflektor’
Although the band hasn’t come outright with the information, Arcade Fire’s fourth studio album is likely titled Reflektor.
First pointed out by Consequence of Sound, a viral marketing campaign involving a video has been circulating around the internet and real-life events like Lollapalooza and Osheaga. The video, which can be viewed on TheReflektors.com, features a hand writing out the word “Reflektor” into boxes on a chalkboard. As this occurs, music that sounds like it could come from Arcade Fire plays in the background.
Right now, the band hasn’t confirmed whether Reflektor is the title. However, the follow-up to 2010’s The Suburbs is scheduled to hit stores by October 29, and what appears to be album artwork, seen here, came out through Twitter somewhat recently.
Right at the end of 2012, the group’s manager mentioned James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem was collaborating with the Canadian band – possibly in a production role. Scott Rodger, the manager, said to the press at the time: "They're in with James Murphy on three or so songs, plus Markus Dravs who is a long-time collaborator. They write too many songs — that's a good problem to have. There's around 35 songs with Arcade Fire, two albums'-worth for sure."
Since the church where Arcade Fire usually recorded had been damaged, they started working in Murphy’s DFA Records studio in New York. Aside from this, little information has been revealed about the release.
