If only the National could have followed the same announcement-release timeline :(
I dig the single a lot. Reminds me of Talking Heads.
Got the same vibe.
When it played on Radio 1, there was a short intro that's not on the iTunes version. Since Everything Now is track 2, I'm assuming maybe that intro was Track 1?
that was quick
Like the single, like that they're keeping the themed outfits alive too.

How's everyone feeling about this release after listening to all the singles?
I'm pumped for it and have thoroughly enjoyed everything except Electric Blue. For the life of me, i cannot get into her voice at all.
Win Butler Says Arcade Fire’s “Everything Now” Was “Kind of An Accident”
I like "Everything Now", "Creature Comfort" and "Electric Blue". However "Signs of Life" is probably the all time worst AF song and the live version I heard of "Chemistry" could be right there with it. So I'm nervous.
I enjoy all of the songs release so far. However, it seems like this will be the album with the least emotional impact and more just fun dance tunes. There's 1 or 2 lines in each track that resonate with me, but not compared to their previous work.
Agree with you both. They are moving full steam ahead towards making "meaningful party music" in my mind.
I disagree with the comment about Signs of Life though. Think it's fun and much better than the following AF songs:
- Black Wave/Bad Vibrations
- Some middle tracks on The Suburbs that I can't remember
- I Give You Power
I like "Black Wave" quite a bit. I sometimes even prefer Neon Bible to Funeral. I agree "I Give You Power" is a bad song. I enjoy all of The Suburbs even if I'd put it 3rd in my record rankings.
The bonus tracks on Reflektor are horrific.
I give you power sucks so much.
I was really pumped about this until the two most recent songs released. I'm nervous now.
It's weird, my initial reaction to almost every song released so far has been "meh, okay". But now I really enjoy all of them. I definitely don't think this album will top any of the first three releases, but if it's better than Reflektor I'll be satisfied.
Can anyone tell me how to access the Infinite Playlist? Is it on Spotify or something?
If anyone in the Philly area wants to go to this show tonight I will give you two tickets via Ticketmaster transfer for free. The wife and I can’t make it.
'Crown of Love' and 'In the Backseat' are so wonderful.

Damn, would have been cool.
And they made it snow in the venue during Tunnels. Had to be a religious experience.
this is good
Been listening to The Suburbs all morning and I’m hard pressed to think of an album that’s aged better over the past decade. There’s a good think-piece to be written about it’s lyrics in the context of the indie music-spheres transformation since it’s release, but I won’t be the one to write it.
