Out of nowhere two new Arcade Fire tracks were dropped on the world, both premiered in the U.K. on the Zane Lowe show. The songs were ripped from his radio show, so the quality isn’t the greatest, but they still sound pretty great in the artistic sense. Supposedly these songs will be released on a deluxe version of The Suburbs and maybe included in the Spike Jones directed short film Scenes From The Suburbs.
The first song is called Speaking In Tongues and features some minor vocals from David Byrne and the second is called Culture War. I prefer Speaking In Tongues over Culture War, but they’re both pretty nice and definitely fit into the vibe of the other songs from The Suburbs. Props to ListenBeforeYouBuy for ripping these tracks and making them available to everyone.
