Arcade Fire Unveil Comeback Song

Published

It's been three long years since The Suburbs but Arcade Fire are back.

And the long-awaited comback single is Reflektor which received its world premiere tonight (September 9).

The key points:

-There's some congas in there

-It's 'groovy' (probably due to the presence of LCD Soundsystem man James Murphy on production duties)

-There's some vocals in French

-It gets quite big, threatens to go really big, then doesn't, but that's fine

-David Bowie is on backing vocals. David Bowie!

-It's very, very good and sets the scene for the new album perfectly

But don't take our word for it - watch the epic Anton Corbijn-directed seven and a half minute video below and see what you think. There's also an interactive version here.

Reflektor (album) is scheduled for release October 29
