Arcade Fire has always sounded funereal to my ears. But people love them and those people will probably be excited to hear the first recording of an unreleased new song, Crucified Again, which the band performed on Thursday night in New York City.
According to Gothamist, Arcade Fire performed at the 25th anniversary party for Partners In Health, which works to provide healthcare for the poor worldwide, and updated their YouTube page with a video the performance the next day. Crucified Again will reportedly be on their forthcoming album.
Still not my cup of tea, but have a listen if they’re your cup of tea.
