Arcade Fire has been very mysterious with the roll-out of their upcoming album. James Murphy, who produced the album, called it “epic,” but we still haven’t heard any music. Reflektor artwork started popping up in difference cities, and artists involved claimed that it was related to Arcade Fire, but no details emerged on the album, scheduled for an October 29 release date.
A final piece of art in New York City featured the same Reflektor design along with the cryptic message “9PM 9/9,” which led many to believe the first single will drop at 9 p.m. on September 9. Now, a week away from that date, Arcade Fire has released a 15-second snippet on Spotify, simply titled “9pm 9/9.”
It still doesn’t give much insight into what the music will sound like, but listen below, and stay tuned.
