Arcade Fire Release Surprise Single ‘Everything Now’ on Vinyl
Pitchfork confirms the song is for sale at merch tables on Arcade Fire's current tour. No official audio has surfaced yet, though one fan has already uploaded a YouTube clip of the song. Others have posted images of the single, which reportedly features an instrumental version of "Everything Now" on its B-side.
Arcade Fire has been hinting at an imminent new album since January, when they released a collaboration with Mavis Staples called "I Give You Power." They've since debuted some six previously unheard tracks during a secret Montreal show. The band posted an image that appears to be new album artwork earlier today, with the caption: “Stay tuned for Infinite Content.”
A Vancouver radio station promised a new single as early as this Friday, Stereogum reports. Merchandise with "NOW," "EN," and the infinity symbol have also apparently shown up at Arcade Fire's booth at Primavera Sound, the Barcelona-based space where they are set to perform on Saturday.
No release date has been announced for Arcade Fire's fifth full-length. Intimate dates at London's York Hall are set for July, along with confirmed stops at the Isle of Wight Festival, and the Castlefield Bowl in Manchester, among others, after the Primavera show. A stop at Lollapalooza follows in August.
