It’s really nothing more than a tease, but Arcade Fire has followed up last week’s postcard missive sent to “The Internet” announcing a new single with a very, very short sample from the imminent release. Click on the virtual record and spin it a bit to hear a very Arcade Fire sounding instrumental intro. You might not learn anything at all about what “The Suburbs” sounds like, but it’s still kind of a fun interactive promotional gimmick.
