4. Arcade Fire - Title Unkown

Over the past year, Arcade Fire have let their fans closely monitor the making of their fourth studio album. Every couple of days, Win and Regine upload the latest demos to their website, and a live webcam broadcasts from their studio 24/7. As soon as a song is done, they post it on Facebook, and fans vote whether or not it should be on the album. Fans have even been allowed to submit their own songs, and the six best will be covered by Arcade Fire on the album. Actually, none of that is true. Imagine the exact opposite of that scenario, and you'll have some idea of the secrecy surrounding this album. We know that Arcade Fire have been working on the disc up in Canada for quite some time, and that James Murphy will be involved to some degree, but beyond that it's all a giant question mark.
