Arcade Fire Announce 'Everything Now' Album, Unveil New Video and North American Tour
The LP's lead-off single is co-produced by Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter
Published Jun 01, 2017After a flurry of cryptic teasers, record deal signings and single releases these past few days, Arcade Fire have revealed that their new full-length will see release next month. The record is titled Everything Now and will arrive July 28 through Columbia.
Along with the album announcement, the band have properly shared the record's first single, "Everything Now," which was co-produced by none other than Daft Punk's silver-helmed hero Tomas Bangalter, as well as Arcade Fire themselves and Steve Mackey.
You can hear it below, as well as watch its newly revealed video.
That's the album cover above, and while we so far don't have a full tracklist, the record will feature 13 new songs.
UPDATE (6/1, 4:45 p.m. EDT): Arcade Fire have now debuted the new song "Creature Comfort" at Barcelona's Primavera Sound fest, and you can check out some fan-shot footage of the new song at the bottom of the page.
Topping all this off, the band have now announced a full North American tour, with tons of Canadian dates. Among the openers are the likes of Wolf Parade, Broken Social Scene, Angel Olsen, Phantogram Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Grandmaster Flash.
You can see the full schedule below.
UPDATE (6/13, 11:50 a.m. EDT): Arcade Fire have now announced a second Toronto date with Broken Social Scene on November 4. You can see the updated schedule below.
The lead-up to the reveal was certainly a complicated one. Yesterday (May 31), the band teased fans by asking them to stay tuned for "Infinite Content," while it was also revealed that they were selling new merch and selling Everything Now's title track on a 12-inch single at Primavera Sound.
The band also launched a mysterious live stream at live.everythingnow.com, in addition to breaking the news that they had signed with Columbia Records.
Arcade Fire's four previous albums — 2004's Funeral, 2007's Neon Bible, 2010's The Suburbs and 2013's Reflektor — were all released via Merge.
Arcade Fire delivered standalone single "I Give You Power" earlier this year, which featured soul legend Mavis Staples.
