Arcade Fire Will Release ‘The Reflektor Tapes’ Documentary in September
Arcade Fire will release a feature-length documentary dubbed, The Reflektor Tapes, on Sept. 24. The Kahlil Joseph-directed film will play in theaters for a limited time.
In addition to The Reflektor Tapes, Joseph has worked with the likes of FKA Twigs, Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus and Shabazz Palaces and received the 2013 Sundance Grand Jury Prize for Short Films. According to Arcade Fire Tube, the forthcoming film is a “crossroads of documentary, music, art and personal history.” Theater and ticket information and a trailer are expected soon.
Arcade Fire released their fourth full-length, Reflektor, back in 2013. Since then, the Canadian art-rock collective have been focused on a diverse set of individual projects. Earlier this year, Win Butler and Regine Chassagne were revealed as part-owners of Jay-Z’s Tidal streaming service, and the couple has plans to open a Haitian cuisine restaurant in their hometown of Montreal.
Meanwhile, Arcade Fire’s Will Butler and Tim Kingsbury have been hard at work on their respective solo careers. Butler released his debut album, Policy, in March. Kingsbury announced he will make his debut under the solo stage moniker Sam Patch in August with a performance at Montreal’s Passovah Summer Fest.
