Having performed the song live for the first time at a surprise show in Barcelona on 1st June, Arcade Fire has now released ‘Everything Now’, the title track from the band's fifth album due out on 28th July.
The new album is Arcade Fire’s first release under its new partnership with the global media and e-commerce platform Everything Now in synergy with the Sony corporation.
