Arcade Fire have been pretty secretive about the details of their follow-up to 2010’s The Suburbs, which is titled Reflektor. It’s out Oct. 29, and that’s about as much as we know about it, other than that the band is planning on doing something — something — on Sept. 9 at 9 p.m., as you can see in the image above.
However, the band released a new trailer for the album today, which features string-laden music and silhouettes of the band’s members, so, I don’t know, it’s a little closer to telling us something about the album. We don’t know what it’s telling us, but it’s something.
