Ottawa brings forth the good news: Arcade Fire
is working on a brand-new full-length album they're hoping will be ready for a late 2013 release.
In an interview with Ottawa, Canada radio station CKCU 93.1
, drummer Jeremy Gara shared that the indie darlings are currently in the studio and their work ethic is actually pretty damn noteworthy:
". . . We're in the studio pretty much full-time just doing what we do. And we kind of shut the door. We haven't really gone out and done anything in over a year now," Gara says. "We haven't done photos or interviews or anything. We're just working on music and growing beards and living at home a lot and going out to dinner together."
In the meantime, check out some tunes below and take heart in the fact that more fresh tunes are coming!
