In between opening a Haitian restaurant and releasing a trailer for their upcoming feature-length documentary The Reflektor Tapes, Arcade Fire are now set to unveil two previously unheard tracks titled Get Right and Crucified Again. The songs will be released on a limited-edition black 7-inch vinyl that’s sure to be yet another piece of memorabilia for fans of the Canadian six-piece.
Both tracks were recorded during sessions for the band’s most recent album Reflektor, and didn’t make the final cut, but they’ve been performed live multiple times. Check out a fan-recorded Get Right below.
The songs are featured in The Reflektor Tapes and if the first ethereal and throbbing trailer is anything to go by (featuring the groovy and glitchy and very sleek Porno), we’re hoping the studio versions of the tracks will be just as polished. The new documentary, which comes out September 24, is “almost like a remix record, just in its way of thinking about film, thinking about our music,” said Butler in an interview with Billboard.
Meanwhile, Arcade Fire’s new seven-inch release comes out just a day after the doco, and we can’t wait to experience both in all their glory. They last visited Australia at the beginning of 2014, where they headlined Big Day Out.
