Today we were informed that Canandian-based band, Arcade Fire will be releasing a new LP consisting of lost tracks from the Funeral era recordings.  

These are tracks that didn’t make the cut for the album, but were in close competition to the other tracks that were included on Funeral.

Frontman Win Butler, was reported saying, “It’s obvious we really like playing with the idea of neighborhoods. Did you realize our third album is titled, The Suburbs? It is. It may appear that we only dipped into the concept with Funeral, but in reality we recorded several tracks that could’ve made the album.”

The Tracklist:

Neighborhood #5 (No Truths)

Neighborhood #7 (Destructed Innocence)

Neighborhood #12 (Bicycles)

Neighborhood #15 (Disappointment)

Neighborhood #96 (Lueur Dans l'obscurité)

No Neighborhoods

Neighborhood #133 (Unopened Doors)

Neighborhood #134 (Closed Doors)

Neighborhood #134 (Continued)

The LP is to be released in late 2014, when the band breaks from their recent tour, promoting their newest album, Reflektor.

Richard Reed Perry, multi-instrumentalist for indie rock band Arcade Fire, will release his debut album of classical music compositions, Music for Heart and Breath, on Deutsche Grammophon on June 19. 

After touring the globe many times over with one of the world’s biggest rock bands, Perry’s aim was to create an entirely different music experience, one that was “extremely intimate, extremely quiet, and extremely gentle”. 

The 36 year-old Canadian’s first foray into chamber music is inspired by the natural rhythms of the human body. Each musician performs wearing a stethoscope attached to their chest, and must play each note in time with the natural movements of their own body.  It’s a fascinating approach to composing and performing music.
