Canadian alternative rock band Arcade Fire made headlines today by allowing their upcoming fourth album Reflektor to be streamed via YouTube. The album stream is essentially one giant lyric video, which is a unique concept, and has fans not only listening to their new music, but also memorizing the words.
Featuring production from LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy, Reflektor was recorded over the course of the last two years in a variety of locations, including the Trident Castle in Jamaica.
