Arcade Fire Unveils New Single ‘Crucified Again’
The Montreal-based band posted
the track at its YouTube account.
A new song from Arcade Fire has hit the online media. The Canadian indie group performed the new song ‘Crucified Again’ during the 25th anniversary celebration of Partners in Health, which was held in New York City last October 4. That performance is now posted at video-sharing site YouTube. The same song was performed by the band earlier this year at a gig in Haiti.
Last March, Arcade Fire posted online another new song ‘Abraham’s Daughter.’ That track was included in the soundtrack of the Hollywood blockbuster flick ‘The Hunger Games.’ Also in that album is the record ‘Horn of Plenty,’ written and produced by band members Regine Chassagne and Win Butler.
This July, Arcade Fire revealed through its Twitter account that its record label Mercury Records has already confirmed the release of its new album in 2013. However, there is no disclosure yet about the exact date of the release. The band just revealed that it is currently working on that new studio album, which will be its fourth and a follow-up to its last CD ‘The Suburbs,’ which received critics’ acclamation worldwide when it was released in 2010.
Arcade Fire consists of Will Butler, Tim Kingsbury, Sarah Neufeld, Richard Reed Parry, Jeremy Gara, and the wife and husband duo of Regine Chassagne and Win Butler. The group released its first album ‘Funeral’ in 2004. Their sophomore LP ‘Neon Bible’ was launched in 2007 and the third ‘The Suburbs’ in August 2010.
The third album was a critical success, as mentioned, after it was declared the Best Album at Shockwaves NME Awards 2011. The same LP also won the 2011 Polaris Music Prize, which is the equivalent in Canada of the Mercury Music Prize in the UK.
