As a follow-up to my previous post indicating that samples of the new Arcade Fire singles were being offered on their website, news comes today via… well, basically everywhere, that the singles were played in their entirety on the radio earlier today and someone has been kind enough to rip them and provide them to grateful listeners around the world.  First thoughts are that it’s a bit dancier, a bit edgier, and a bit more lo-fi (although this might just be the radio rip), but that it’s definitely got the Arcade Fire “je ne sais quoi”.

Enjoy the singles, available for download from One Thirty BPM.

Update: New album will be called “The Suburbs” and is due to be released August 2nd
