Arcade Fire have today announced that their eagerly anticipated sixth studio album WE!

WE’s arrival is preceded by first single ‘The Lightning I, II’, with a video directed by Emily Kai Bock

Produced by Nigel Godrich, alongside Arcade Fire’s husband and wife co-founders Win Butler & Regine Chassagne, and recorded in multiple locales including New Orleans, El Paso and Mount Desert Island, WE paradoxically distils “the longest we’ve ever spent writing, uninterrupted, probably ever” (per Win Butler) into a concise 40 minute epic – one as much about the forces that threaten to pull us away from the people we love, as it is inspired by the urgent need to overcome them.

WE’s cathartic journey follows a definable arc from darkness into light over the course of seven songs divided into two distinct sides — Side “I” channelling the fear and loneliness of isolation, and Side “WE” expressing the joy and power of reconnection.
