Arcade Fire Return with New Songs, Interview; Album to Come

After making a big splash with its first two albums, "Funeral" and "Neon Bible," Montreal band Arcade Fire is preparing for the release of its third album, "The Suburbs." Two songs from it, the title track and "Month of May," have been previewed online since their release last week and digital versions can be bought online from the Arcade Fire website.

The album "The Suburbs" will be released on August 3rd in the U.S. and Canada. It's available for pre-order now in a variety of formats from the band's website.

You can listen to the two new Arcade Fire songs free on NPR Music, and also hear a chat they did with Arcade Fire's Win and Will Butler. (You can stream the chat online or download it.)

You can learn more about the album at, and find the latest Arcade Fire tour dates as well (not many so far; a bunch in Europe, a couple in Canada, and Lollapalooza in Chicago on August 8th).
