Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs Deluxe Edition Now Available

The way The Suburbs was meant to be.

Time has been nice to Arcade Fire. The Canadian indie rockers had a massive year with the release of their third LP, The Suburbs, capping it off with a worldwide tour in support of the album and then taking the music industry by storm, earning the top honor of “Album of the Year” at last year’s Grammy’s. It’s a remarkable album no doubt, and considering the major success that is The Suburbs, the band has now released a deluxe edition exactly one year from its original release to help continue the festivities.

This new 2-disc deluxe edition features the album’s original 16-track tracklist plus two previously unreleased bonus tracks entitled “Culture War” and “Speaking In Tongues” featuring none other than new waver David Byrne, along with an extended version of “Wasted Hours.” Accompanying the release is an 80-page booklet featuring unreleased artwork from the band’s recording sessions and marketing photo shoots.

Also included in the set is a DVD featuring Spike Jonze-directed short film, “Scenes from The Suburbs,” a Behind-the-Scenes look at the making of the short film, and the music video for the single “The Suburbs,” also directed by Spike Jonze.

For those of you who already own The Suburbs, you can easily purchase these additional features digitally via iTunes. For those of you who have yet to pick up this album or are a huge Arcade Fire fan like I am, here is your chance to grab the full package as it was intended.
