Arcade Fire are continuing their teasing, building up – presumably – to new music.
Last week, fans started receiving postcards with what appeared to be the band’s logo on it. They also contained some musical notation, too.
Since then, multiple different postcards with different scores have been received.
To date, there are four snippets, all of which a fan has translated into listenable clips.
New postcards have now started to arrive in America – with what some fans think is a familiar notation. Last year, Arcade Fire made a 45-minute long song ‘Memories of the Age of Anxiety’ for the Headspace app. The latest postcards to show, apparently, have a score that matches up to a segment of that song. “At first pass, this looks like the piano melody that bookends ‘Memories of the Age of Anxiety’,” one explains.
That’s not all, either. If you head to the band’s Instagram, you’ll notice their profile picture is the same eye drawing found on the postcards, and stickers and posters found in London and Toronto over recent days. It appears that the image has been ‘zooming out’ day by day, suggesting perhaps that comeback is coming very soon indeed.
Back in 2020, Win Butler claimed the band had recorded “two or three” albums of material during the pandemic. Their last album, ‘Everything Now’, was released in 2017.
