A new album from the all-conquering Arcade Fire could be on the way if frontman Win Butler's comments after the band's recent concert in Hyde Park are to be believed.
The Canadian band, who played a sold-out gig in Dublin's Marlay Park on Sunday, released their most recent album Reflektor at the tail-end of October last year and seem intent on not waiting too long to release their next (and fifth) album.
Speaking NME, Butler said: "We're in a position now where we can had an idea and the people around us make it happen. It starts when you get off the road. If I ever feel bored now, it's the best feeling in the world, because I know that's when the next idea is going to come into my brain and it will start again."
While Butler didn't give any official confirmation of definitive new album plans, it's thought that the band are keen to record as soon as possible.
It isn't yet known if LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy, who contributed to the more disco-synth elements of Reflektor, will again be involved in a production capacity. Arcade Fire also work with Marcus Dravs (Mumford & Sons, Little Green Cars) frequently.
