SummersRadio™ New Music/ Video! Arcade Fire!

SummersRadio™ New Music/ Video! Arcade Fire - 'Reflektor'

Arcade Fire have just released their new single and video 'Reflektor' online! 'Reflektor' was officially released last night (9/9) at 9pm - Montreal time (2am here in London). If you're keen you may have anticipated this post today - as we did finish yesterday off with Tears For Fears covering Arcade Fire.

'Reflektor' is the first single and title track from the band's forthcoming fourth album which is produced by James Murphy and is set for release on October 29th on Merge Records. 'Reflektor' is expected to be a double album as the songs are currently numbered 1 - 7 and 1 - 6 for pre-order on iTunes.

Here is the album cover art:


This is the official video for 'Reflektor' directed by Anton Corbijn - featuring lots of shiny things! You see I believe that Arcade Fire secretly want to be disco stars - really. First there was the remarkable similarity between their song 'Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)' and Blondie's 'Heart Of Glass' - if you think that statement sounds crazy you can revisit this Hood Internet mashup for proof: http://summersradio.blogspot.co.uk/2011/02/summersradio-new-mashup-free-download.html

Secondly there's fact that they've enlisted James Murphy (formerly of LCD Soundsystem) as producer - who's well known for infusing indie rock with dance sensibilities. And thirdly we have this video - filled with disco balls - disco outfits, disco shacks - even a discofied coffin - and they're totally raving in the woods around 5:45 in! 

I look forward to seeing if there are any official remixes of this track forthcoming (those gurgly bits around 2:40 in would lend well to a techno remix) and even if there aren't, there will most certainly be a number of unofficial remixes heading our way very soon I reckon... Enjoy!
