Arcade Fire's new LP gets name, release date, album art.
27 May 10
Much like the 12″ release it turns out that the bands 3rd LP will in fact ALSO be called “The Suburbs” (Arcade Fire geek knowledge time: A song from an old Arcade Fire EP had the lyrics “My father was a miner who lived in the suburbs/Let’s live in the suburbs”) and it’ll be hitting all good retailers August the 3rd. Which is sweet of them, releasing an album so close to my birthday, I never knew they cared so much. Whilst the front page is draped in AF news, we might as well mention that their lyrics page has been updated with possibly the coolest lyric sheet ever made (pro tip: click the words). See a letter with some words on it below.
Love you Arkady Fireovitch.
