Hear "Month of May" and "The Suburbs", both of which debuted yesterday on Radio One in foggy London town. Both will be featured on The Suburbs
, the third full length studio record from The Arcade Fire
, due 8/3 on Merge.
Both cuts will be available on the 7" (out today), which was located yesterday
in a random shop in Glasgow, very randomly, by a radio DJ. COINCIDENCE? Both are also available in digital form when you preorder the record.
As previously observed, snippets of each were available to those patient enough to manually spin a flash-operated "record" on the band's website. Those patient enough did not include this guy, who is frequently angered by band's creating annoyingly difficult barriers to hearing their music, thinking (often correctly) that their rabid fans will complete any task they set forth, no matter how ludicrous or obnoxious. Whoa, maybe we should just listen.
What do you think? "Month Of May" is obviously a bit more feverish, capturing that "Neighborhoods" like energy of Arcade Fire past. "The Suburbs" is the mellow companion, more of a grower, and more introspective. Curious what they mean for the larger record...
Hear both below or listen to the band talk about them today on NPR at noon ET
