"Ah, the end of another long week in a series of long weeks, days, months...anyway, my first grader’s teacher has generously given us a “free Friday” so no school work today! To celebrate, and to say thanks to all the amazing teachers out there, I would like to request one of my daughter, Madeleine’s, favorite songs: All is love by Karen O. Many thanks!" - Rachel

Wake Up
by Arcade Fire
(378 plays) | (1 fan)

A new Arcade Fire album is in the works, as confirmed recently by bandmember Win Butler via his Instagram page: "Regine and I have been writing for the last couple of years, and the band was a few months into recording new material when COVID-19 hit…We had been exploring a lot of lyrical and musical themes that feel almost eerily related to what is happening now (we actually have a song called Age of Anxiety written a year ago for Christ’s sake – ha ha ). Needless to say, the writing has intensified, and the work is flowing out… It is challenging as ever, and with just as much purpose. […] For my part, I’m pouring my heart, soul and all of my precious time into the music and recording."

"The basic idea was that we were not giving a f*ck if the song works or not. It just felt good to write something beautiful with no other purpose than to let this feeling out." - https://www.kexp.org/read/2019/4/5/lea-porcelain-reassure-us-new-single-i-am-ok-kexp-premiere/
