Arcade Fire Releases Disco-Infected Track/Video 'Signs of Life'
    • FRIDAY, JUNE 30, 2017

    After releasing the third track from the upcoming record, Everything Now, it's clear that Arcade Fire is infected with disco. Everything Now jingled a dance groove that echoed elements of their last album from 2013, Reflektor. James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem produced that last record, which meant it was going to be a danceable record, but Arcade Fire have made permanent the rhythmic grooves of the last album.

    Developed and made for the dance-floor, "Signs of Life" starts with an ostinato bass and collected clapping from the band. As the beginning grows, a saxophone, extra percussion, piano, and other instruments are introduced. The pre-chorus features terrifically syncopated hits tripled on the sax, bass, and viola. Win Butler's speech like vocals critique the search process of love, comparing it to space exploration and signs of alien life. On top of the music, the video features two investigative agents investigating, well, nothing, and making love along the way.

    Everything Now will be Arcade Fire's first album release since 2013 and will be out July 28th.
