There had been some talk circulating the internet that the Arcade Fire was working on some new songs, but the band was careful to not give away too much. Fans, including myself, kept asking the question "does this mean a new Arcade Fire album in 2010?". Well, now it's official. According to Billboard.com, the Arcade Fire is nearly complete in recording their yet-to-be-titled third full-length album, which is due out in the spring.
The band spent six months with producer Markus Dravs, who has collaborated with well-known artists such as Bjork and Brian Eno, and also took part in engineering the band's 2007 release Neon Bible.
Expect a North American tour in 2010!
