Arcade Fire will accompany their upcoming documentary The Reflektor Tapes with an actual cassette soundtrack featuring six unreleased songs from that 2013 LP’s session. The Reflektor Tapes limited edition cassette, which will ship around October 16th, features six non-LP tracks, including the gospel-influenced “Get Right” and a remix of Reflektor‘s “Flashbulb Eyes” by dub practitioner Dennis Bovell and Jamaican poet Linton Kwesi Johnson.
The cassette, as well as a limited edition “Get Right” seven-inch vinyl backed by “Crucified Again,” is available to pre-order now at Arcade Fire’s official site. The Reflektor Tapes‘ contents will be delivered digitally on September 25th, the same day a deluxe digital edition of Reflektor boasting all six unreleased songs will be arrive. “Get Right” and “Crucified Again” are streaming now over at Tidal, where Arcade Fire are co-owners (despite the “poorly managed launch”).
The Reflektor Tapes documentary, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, will begin its U.S. theatrical run on September 23rd. Directed by Kahlil Joseph, the film chronicles Arcade Fire during the making of their 2013 album, from the band’s “creative journey” to Jamaica to the Montreal recording sessions. The doc also follows Arcade Fire on tour in support of the album, kicking off with an impromptu performance in a Haitian hotel up through sold-out, covers-happy arena shows across America and Europe.
