Just in time for their headlining shows on the Southside & Hurricane Festival 2011, Arcade Fire release a deluxe edition of their 2010 hit album 'The Suburbs' together with Spike Jonze's short movie 'Scenes From The Suburbs' in a special CD/DVD set.
The CD comes with the album and two brand new bonustracks. The DVD features Spike Jonze's short movie 'Scenes From The Suburbs' which since it's premiere at the Berlinale earlier this year never been released, as well as a making of. The package is completed by an 80 page photo booklet.
Our hearty congratulations go out to Montreal's ARCADE FIRE, who last night won the ultimate music critic's accolade: the Grammy for the BEST ALBUM OF THE YEAR, upsetting the likes of Eminem, Katy Perry as well as Lady Antebellumgaga. Today, with that extra piece of carry-on, they are flying to London to perform at tomorrow’s Brit Awards ceremony where they will hopefully turn this into a winning streak...!
Wednesday February 16, they will travel on to Berlin to attend the official world premiere of their self-produced shortfilm "Scenes From The Suburbs", directed by no other than Spike Jonze.
Celebrated director Spike Jonze teamed up with Arcade Fire to create a thirty-minute short film inspired by their award winning album, The Suburbs, and its themes of war and coming of age in suburbia. Co-written by Jonze & Arcade Fire’s Will Butler & Win Butler, this companion piece to the album follows the narrator, living in a suburban dystopia, trying to piece together fragmented memories from when he was a teenager, and his experiences with his friends as they grow apart.
