Arcade Fire have made the announcement that they will soon be sharing a brand new short-film ‘Money + Love’ to work as a double-header video for two of their more recent tracks ‘Put Your Money on Me’ and ‘We Don’t Deserve Love’. The full film will drop on March 15th.

It comes ahead of the scheduled UK tour, which you can see the dates for below, and will see the band work with not only David Wilson, whom they collaborated with in 2014 on ‘Reflektor’ and ‘We Exist’ but also Australian actress Toni Colette.

Win Butler has said: “The concept of a double video really appealed to us, we’d always loved songs being put together as A and B sides… and these songs seemed perfect together. David has been a great collaborator for us since Reflektor and we were finally able to work with Toni whom we’d been wanting to work with for some time.”

UK Dates:

06/04 Dublin 3Arena
08/04 Manchester Arena
11/04 London SSE Arena Wembley
12/04 London SSE Arena Wembley
13/04 London SSE Arena Wembley

Arcade Fire are never a band to do things by halves. Ever since their 2004 debut album ‘Funeral’, the Canadian sextet have been gradually expanding their scope, with their Reflektor Tour in 2014 featuring no less than 12 band members on stage at any given time.

It was quite a spectacle, and now Arcade Fire have announced a DVD and Blu-Ray release of the Earl’s Court concert from this tour. It will be coupled with ‘The Reflektor Tapes’, the 2015 documentary about the tour and the recording of the ‘Reflektor’ album. The 2-disc set will be out January 27th.

Watch the live version of title track ‘Reflektor’  start speculating about Arcade Fire’s follow-up album? – which Will Butler has stated may very well be out in the first quarter of 2017 .

Arcade Fire’s next tour is reportedly set for November of 2017, but in the meantime, fans will be able to experience one of their live performances without leaving the couch. The studio and concert film Arcade Fire: The Reflektor Tapes/Live at Earls Court will get a DVD and BluRay release next month.

The set includes Lemonade director Kahlil Joseph’s documentary The Reflektor Tapes, originally released as a one-night theater-exclusive, along with a full concert recorded at London’s Earls Court in 2014. Additionally, the band has shared a clip of their sparkling “Reflektor”performance from The Reflektor Tapes/Live at Earls Court, due out January. 27th 2017.

Arcade Fire release their first feature film, The Reflektor Tapes, in theaters September 23 for a limited time.

Arcade Fire’s fourth album Reflektor is a sprawling, 75 minute double album featuring James Murphy, Jonathan Ross, voodoo, disco, dub reggae, bobbleheads and disco balls. To debunk, or perhaps further demystify the album released in 2013, the Canadian group have created The Reflektor Tapes, a film that arrives in cinemas in America on 23rd September and worldwide on 24th September

Directed by 2013 Sundance Grand Jury Prize for Short Films winner Kahlil Joseph, and produced by award-winning studio Pulse Films (20,000 Days on Earth, Shut Up And Play The Hits) and What Matters Most, it is a hybrid of documentary, music and art which explores the making of Reflektor. Using personal footage and interviews tracing back to its initial beginnings in Jamaica, to the recording sessions in Montreal and an impromptu gig at a Haitian hotel on the first night of carnival, the film also takes a peek behind the curtain of their tour, capturing footage from their arena dates in Los Angeles and London.

Arcade Fire said of the film: “There were parts of the Reflektor tour where I think we, Arcade Fire, came the closest in our careers to putting on stage what we imagined in our heads. We were insanely lucky to have Kahlil Joseph documenting from the very beginning.”
