“The most exciting band in the world… a new Arcade Fire album is always going to be a big deal… visceral power and beauty and grace… staggering impact… euphoric climaxes-upon-climaxes.”—STEREOGUM
Arcade Fire has released a third track from its forthcoming fifth album, Everything Now, due out July 28 on CD, cassette, digital download and heavyweight black vinyl LP through an exclusive 360-degree partnership with global media and e-commerce platform Everything Now in synergy with the Sony corporation.
Following in the tradition of the album’s title track and “Creature Comfort” (available in both Official and Official Official versions), “Signs of Life” can now be streamed, downloaded or watched http://smarturl.it/SignsOfLifeVid — for those wishing to join the band in its search for human and/or extraterrestrial connection. As with “Everything Now” and “Creature Comfort,” “Signs of Life” is also available with pre-orders of the new album.
