Well, the wait is finally over.
Arcade Fire released a full-length stream of its latest album “Reflektor” today on its Youtube page. The video features the entire double album, along with lyrics. Pitchfork reports that the mysterious background video is from “Black Orpheus,” a 1959 Brazilian film based on the legend of Orpheus.
Frontman Win Butler says the movie influenced the album in an interview with Rolling Stone.
"Reflektor," produced by James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem fame, is chock-full of anthemic, upbeat tracks. So far, we're fans.
