Two new singles from Arcade Fire

Arcade Fire‘s third album, The Suburbs, drops in August of this year. In the meantime the Canadian septet have released two singles just this week, one in the US and one this side of the water.

How do you think they compare? Do you think The Suburbs will live live up to the monolithic success of Funeral or Neon Bible?

Check them out below.

The UK single is ‘We Used To Wait’

The US single is -Ready to Start’

  • Sounds fairly decent. The European one sounds better to me so far, but maybe that’s just because Arcade Fire are so smart they know exactly what pleases the European ear. A bit heavier on synths and a little less natural sounding then previous stuff.
