Zane Lowe of BBC – Radio 1, was again the first to premiere two additional tracks from Arcade Fire’s forthcoming release, The Suburbs, on his radio show Monday night. And once again, a feeding frenzy was unleashed to devour the songs, rip ‘em, and spread ‘em like pâté across the entire Internet. Fortunately, during this feast, we were able to snag you a bite or two.
While the song, Ready to Start has been performed live by the band at gigs in the last week or two, this is the first time the song, We Used to Wait, has been heard. Ready to Start, is the official U.S. single, while We Used to Wait, serves as the official U.K. single.
The Suburbs is set for an August 3rd Release via Merge Records.
