Arcade Fire to Start Working on New Album Today, Frontman Suggests
Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler gave a strong hint that the band will return to the studio following tonight's (July 3) headline show at London's Hyde Park.

Chatting with NME during this year's Glastonbury festival, Win commented, "We're in a position now where we can have an idea and the people around us to make it happen.

"It starts when you get off the road," he added. "If I ever feel bored now, it's the best feeling in the world, because I know that's when the next idea is going to come into my brain and it will start again."

During the rest of the interview, the musician praised Glasto's "purity." As reported, the group performed as one of the event's headliners, rocking the Pyramid Stage on June 27.

"Glastonbury is like the ultimate, in terms of not being a corporate weird thing, it's still got this purity to it which is very in line with how our band thinks about music," Butler said right after the Friday night show.

The band's latest studio effort, double LP "Reflektor," saw its release in late October 2013 via Merge Records.
