In an interview with the Ringer NBA show, Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler has revealed that the band might release a new single as soon as 2019.

Win Butler, who is a big basketball fan (in 2016, he became MVP at the NBA All Stars celebrity game), has revealed to the Ringer NBA show (ep. 387) that the Canadian band might release a new single as soon as 2019! The frontman said that they were “just working on a track, it will actually be out sooner than later”. Later, he answered “yeah” when the interviewer asked about a “possible Arcade Fire single coming out this year?”.

If nothing comes in their way, can we expect a new album and following tour in 2020?

Arcade Fire toured for two years after the release of Everything Now in 2017. Their last European show took place at Pukkelpop in 2018, and their last US show at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, California on 22 September.

Arcade Fire

Arcade Fire are an indie rock band from Montreal, Canada, formed in 2000. In 2004, the band had a major breakthrough with their debut album Funeral. This album is still considered to be one of the best of the 2000s, and includes famous songs like ‘Rebellion (Lies)’ and ‘Wake Up’. Their third album The Suburbs was possibly even more successful, winning the 2011 Grammy Award for Album of the Year. In 2017, Arcade Fire released their fifth album, Everything Now.
