Arcade Fire has released “Electric Blue”—the fourth and final advance track from the band’s forthcoming fifth album, Everything Now. The song premiered today (July 13th) via Apple Music as Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats 1.
Everything Now will be released July 28th on CD, cassette in folded cardboard sleeve and heavyweight black vinyl LP with 20 different artwork variants bearing the album title in one of 20 different languages. There will also be a limited edition “Night” packaging of both CD and colored vinyl LP formats featuring a gatefold sleeve with folded lyric sheet insert.
Along with the album’s title track, “Creature Comfort” (available in both Official and Official Official versions), and “Signs of Life,” “Electric Blue” can now be streamed, downloaded, and is available with pre-orders of the new album. The video for “Electric Blue,” shot in New Orleans during Mardi Gras season can be seen below.
Everything Now was produced by Arcade Fire, Thomas Bangalter and Steve Mackey, with co-production by Markus Dravs; and was recorded at Boombox Studios in New Orleans, Sonovox Studios in Montreal, and Gang Recording Studio in Paris.
Following the band’s August 6th headlining appearance at Lollapalooza in Chicago, the North American leg of the Infinite Content arena tour will commence September 5th in Quebec City, including Arcade Fire’s return to such storied venues as Madison Square Garden, The Forum in Los Angeles and many more.
