The songs that are sampled are "The Suburbs" and "Month of May," both part of their upcoming 12" single.A new Arcade Fire album is rumored for release later this Summer, with talk that it could be a double album.
The Arcade Fire machine started to heat up with an in limbo web site and talk of a new single. Thanks to the ever on point blogosphere, and the idea of crowdsourcing information, Joel's Arcade Fire Blog and a reader have tracked down information for an Arcade Fire single listed at Amazon for a June 1st release date. The single is titled Suburbs/Month of May.
Then, Arcade Fire posted a notice on their site (pictured above) confirming the new single.
