Arcade Fire's 'Reflektor' Streaming Early on YouTube
Arcade Fire's "Reflektor" leaked earlier today (Oct. 24), and in response, the Canadian indie rockers are streaming the entire album on the band's website and on YouTube.
The stream of the band's fourth studio LP, produced by James Murphy and Markus Dravs, is set to footage from the 1959 film "Black Orpheus," coinciding with the lyric video for the song "Afterlife," released earlier this week.
"Reflektor" is planned for an Oct. 29 release, ending the months of guerrilla marketing campaigns and interesting promotional spots on "Saturday Night Live" and "The Colbert Report" that preceded its debut, during which the band often referred to itself as The Reflektors.
Arcade Fire will be looking to top the Billboard 200 for the second time with "Reflektor," following up 2010's "The Suburbs." The album before, 2007's "Neon Bible," opened at No. 2.
