HEAR WHAT’S NEW: Arcade Fire – Everything Now

The title track from Arcade Fire’s upcoming fifth album is finally out, and it’s another grand, sweeping statement from a band who doesn’t know how to communicate any other way. But maybe the most gratifying thing about “Everything Now” is that—after the heady, complex dance music on Reflektor—the band’s just sailing here. The disco beat and ABBA strings certainly help, but, for a song that confronts our need to obtain everything immediately, ”Everything Now” succeeds by virtue of patience, replacing the peaks and crescendos of previous Arcade Fire anthems with one momentous rush.
