Arcade Fire camped at DFA studios

Artist News

Arcade Fire

So, James Murphy may have said last year that he wasn’t “necessarily” party to the making of Arcade Fire’s new LP, and I’m not saying he is.

What I am saying is that the band have, now that they’ve sold off the Quebec-based church in which ‘Neon Bible’ and 2011’s ‘The Suburbs’ were taped, moved into his NYC-based DFA Records studio.

“Arcade Fire STILL with us at DFA”, ran a tweet via the official DFA studio Twitter, adding a non-informative: “This is going to be one great sounding album!”

So far, so… encouraging.
