Arcade Fire

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Arcade Fire will screen a new documentary, ‘The Reflektor Tapes’, in cinemas on 24 Sep. “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”, say the band of the film. More info here.

• Wilco have released a new album, called ‘Star Wars’, for free on their website. Says the band’s Jeff Tweedy: “Why release an album this way and why make it free? Well, the biggest reason, and I’m not sure we even need any others, is that it felt like it would be fun. What’s more fun than a surprise?” I guess I’ve ruined that surprise now, but you can get it here in exchange for an email address.

• Queen will release a new fifteen disc vinyl boxset featuring all of their albums, remastered from the original studio masters, on 25 Sep. Don’t have a record player? No worries, they’re flogging one of those too. More info here.

• Editors will release a new album, titled ‘In Dreams’, on 2 Oct through [PIAS]. Here’s one of those silly video trailer things.

• Pins have released a new song, ‘Live & Let Go’, the B-side to new single, ‘Dazed By You’, which is out on 21 Aug.

• Minimalist composer Terry Riley will present new work ‘Bell Station III’ at the Barbican in London this Saturday (ie tomorrow), as part of Doug Aitken’s ‘Station to Station: A 30 Day Happening’.
