Arcade Fire first began releasing new music on vinyl at Primavera Festival's merch tables in Spain. Followed by several different cryptic teasers, fans started to speculate what could be coming next, and finally we got it: "Everything Now," the first single off the band's fifth album.

With a swarm of voices chanting "Everything Now!", ABBA strings, and a Bowie-esque theatricality, like most Arcade Fire songs, there are a lot of layers. Although there's a lot going on in the track, it comes across as one of the most natural progressions; the band is floating along. Win Butler delivers his signature metaphors about family, somehow both specific and vague, "Daddy, how come you never come round? / I miss you, like everything now / We won't need the food in your stove / Leave your car in the middle of the road / Just help your family with everything now." It's an adrenaline rush. It's a monumental anthem. It's what Arcade Fire does best.
