Arcade Fire has shared their official trailer for The Reflektor Tapes, a documentary shot by Kahlil Joseph. The film's purpose is to unravel the origins of their 2013 album Reflektor; the footage will follow them from Jamaica to London, using a combination of personal footage, interviews, concert footage, and more. The film will contain a new track and never-before-seen footage. The trailer itself condenses the film's idea as a journey and a narrative, touching upon influences and performances, processes and progresses. We see moments we recognize - the famous mirror-glass outfit, for instance, and performances - and moments that are entirely new. The trailer quivers with energy, as if just waiting to unfold.
The film will be released on September 23rd.
