After news emerged late last year that a new Arcade Fire album was in the pipeline for 2010, the Canadian indie stars have now revealed via a postcard on their website that they will be releasing a new 12" single any day now. See for yourself below:
Amazon.com has listed a double A-side single "Suburbs/Month of May" due for release on June 1st.
Meanwhile, a banner went up briefly on the Arcade Fire website which said "Arcade Fire presents 'The Suburbs'", sparking speculation about whether this would be the new album's title, or something to do with the film project the band are working on with 'Where The Wild Things Are' director Spike Jonze.
You can now listen to very brief samples of 'Suburbs' and 'Month of May' on Arcade Fire's official website, www.arcadefire.com.
