2017's Everything Now was the Canadian band’s last album and their most recent release was a cover of Baby Mine, which first featured on the original 1941 Disney animated feature, for the live action remake of Dumbo in 2019.

However, Arcade Fire have been working on their sixth album during lockdown and played new song, Generation A, on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last November.

Speaking to the NME last summer, the band's Will Butler said the pandemic had put their new record on hold. "Arcade Fire was recording. Well, we were recording… But now our drummer is in Australia, two of us are in Canada, and the rest are in America." he said.
