In case you just can’t wait for the new Arcade Fire album ‘Reflektor’ to be released on October 29th, you’re in luck. The band has released the album in its entirety on YouTube, allowing hungry music nerds to get a taste of the new album.
Arcade Fire has been making the rounds promoting the new album, appearing on SNL and playing some surprise shows across the country. The band also has an Instagram account for the album, and recently released a pretty cool website which utilizes HTML 5 to allow users to interact with the music video via their smartphones.
Apparently, the band decided to put the album up on YouTube after a record store in Ireland accidentally put the album up for sale on its website, causing the album to quickly spread across the internet.
The YouTube release is set to a Brazilian movie Black Orpheus, with the lyrics superimposed over the footage.
