Arcade Fire planning next album in Spring 2017

That's according to Will Butler, anyway.
Arcade Fire will release the follow-up to 2013’s ‘Reflektor’ next year, according to Will Butler.

In a Reddit AMA, Butler explained he’s back in the Arcade Fire groove following last year’s debut solo album ‘Policy’, and this year’s live offering ‘Friday Night’.

Asked if there would be a new solo album soon, he explained: “Not sure yet. Hopefully in the next 18 months, but pretty focused on AF world these days.”

When pressed, he suggested the new Arcade Fire album would be in the “spring”. The band have a number of festival headline sets planned across the summer, but when asked if there’d be new songs in the sets replied “dunno yet”, with plans to work it out “in the next couple of weeks.”

So, there we go. New Arcade Fire in 2017. New Arcade Fire hype possibly imminent.
