Arcade Fire - Culture War & Speaking In Tongues

Arcade Fire are set to release 2 unreleased tracks 'Culture War' & 'Speaking In Tongues' as part of a deluxe edition of The Suburbs. Also included with the deluxe edition is a Spike Jonze film titled 'Scenes From The Suburbs' which shows a behind the scenes type of documentary. Both of the unreleased songs are from the same sessions that brought us The Suburbs. Zane Lowe left this tweet over at Twitter "New Arcade Fire songs are 'Speaking In Tongues' and 'Culture War'. First play w. us May 23. R1." So for a first listen you will have to wait until May 23rd and for the full release of the Deluxe Album the release date is set for June 27th overseas and most likely the following day in North America.

Here are a couple of trailers and clips from the upcoming 'Scenes From The Suburbs' Film.

Here is the first two listens for the two new songs (via LBYB)
