Montreal-based indie band Arcade Fire recently released their fifth studio album, titled Everything Now, and yesterday performed a near two-hour concert in Brooklyn’s Grand Prospect Hall, available exclusively for Apple Music subscribers.
Songs were performed from the new album and at the end of the concert, lead Win Butler told the crowd, “Don’t believe everything you read, good night!”
Rolling Stone critiqued the latest album by saying:
Ultimately, Everything Now is about having a cultural banquet on offer and still feeling hungry. “A terrible song on the radio, baby/What else is new?” laments Butler on “We Don’t Deserve Love,” a queasy, gorgeous ballad that wonders if the human race has maybe earned its pending extinction. Jury’s out. But Arcade Fire have made a perfect soundtrack for pondering the question.
