Arcade Fire Ready New Album

Oh Yeah!

from Arcade Fire's official homepage.

"Just letting you know that things are going very well here in the studio. We have maybe 15 songs with little bits left to record and a few more we want to get to tape. We are going to try and record a couple of songs in me and Regine's living room, because the drums sound so great in there...Feeling excited and inspired, learning to play all these new instruments...Well mostly Regine to be honest! It's gonna be really interesting how we're going to fit all of these new sounds in a tour bus."

"This week we are recording a huge fucking pipe organ on 2 songs...what an incredible sound!"

"Owen is coming here to record with us in early July. There is talk of recording a few songs with a full orchestra in Budapest...The next couple of weeks we will be pulling our hair out."

This sound really promising. I dearly hope that album gets finished over the summer, and we get an late 2006, early 2007 release. But at the same time, I'm really scared of this album. The really need to deliver a classic record after the mindblowing "Funeral". How can you top such a record? I know they'll do it.

I know all of you already have Funeral in your shelves, but if for some strange reason you do not have it, here are some legal downloads from it.

and here is one great video to Arcade Fire's Laika
