Arcade Fire's new single "Reflektor" has leaked online ahead of its Sept. 9 scheduled release date.
According to an article posted Sept. 7 at ConsequenceOfSound.net, fans of the Grammy-winning Canuck indie rockers had a chance this weekend to preview the debut single from the band's much anticipated fourth studio album after Pitchfork.com posted an audio stream of the song on Saturday.
The eight minute track James Murphy produced track features a retro disco groove layered with a synth wash along with vocal that sound like reclusive U.K. rocker David Bowie, who is heavily rumoured to be a guest artist on the project.
Ptichfork.com has since removed the audio file.
Director Anton Corbijn revealed on Sept. 5 that he's directed a video for Arcade Fire's new single“Reflektor," which will premiere at 9 p.m. on Sept. 9.
The Montreal based band also posted a 41-second video clip earlier in the week titled "Reflektor 9/9/9" at their official website on ArcadeFire.com and previewed new material Wednesday at a Montreal Salsa club.
Fans can check out the teaser video clip at ArcadeFire.com.
"Reflektor," the unconfirmed title of Win Butler and company's highly anticipated follow up to their hugely successful 2010 release "The Suburbs," will hit shelves on Oct. 29.
Did you know? Arcade Fire recently released the cover art for their forthcoming single "Reflektor," which displays only six of the seven members of the band (violinist Sarah Neufeld is missing), posed with their instruments, faces deliberately shaded out with the name "The Reflektors" printed on the side of the sleeve.
