Arcade Fire have signed a new record deal, are still confusing us

Why can't bands just release songs normally, eh?
Arcade Fire have signed a new record deal, apparently.

With all sorts of noise going on around new song ‘Everything Now’, which briefly appeared online yesterday after the band sold a 12” version of the track at Primavera, and a forthcoming full-length, Variety have confirmed they’ve signed a new, two record deal with Columbia Records.

Part of Sony Music Entertainment, it’s a move from the band from Capitol Records, part of Universal Music Group.

It’s all about contracts and stuff, basically, but it does keep us moving closer to knowing what’s actually going on. ‘Everything Now’ is expected to drop later today, with rumours that US radio stations will be playing the track at around 2.30PM Eastern Time. Between now and then, try to work out what’s going on at the band’s website, and keep ‘em peeled.
