I guess this is time for Arcade Fire fans to get very excited. Their new single, Get Right was an outtake from the James Murphy produced Reflektor album. The band had previewed the song live as early as April 2014, but it has not been released until now. The 7” vinyl single is backed with Crucified Again.

I don’t understand Arcade Fire but I’m reliably informed that loads of people like them. When I heard the first single taken from ‘Reflektor’ I assumed it was some kind of comedy prank. Anyway a million sales and an appearance in the Pitchfork best albums of all time list on , they are back with a track recorded at the same time as the album but not released until now. It’s bluesy thing with synths - kind of like a (relatively cheery Depeche Mode from back when they did bluesy things). Overleaf there’s a song called ‘Crucified Again’. Is this old or new? I don’t know but its quite chrismassy. An early festive present for Arcade Fire fans.

New music from Arcade Fire is always a reason to celebrate, but these two tracks are actually New-old material that have sprung from the release of the band's pseudo-documentary/concert film 'The Reflektor Tapes'. Whilst the film leaves a lot to be desired, these songs thankfully act as a silver lining.
'Get Right' & 'Crucified Again' are offcuts from Reflektor that didn't make the final tracklist, but now released for the first time as a limited 7" single. The former is a bluesy number that really grows into something that would have sounded perfectly at home alongside all its James Murphy produced siblings, whereas 'Crucified Again' is slower and a little more solemn, sounding far more Neon Bible to me.
If you're already an Arcade Fire fan then this is well worth picking up, however if they're yet to win you over it's highly unlikely to be the release to convert you.

Big fan of the band. Great way to finish of the Reflektor era probably not their best ever tune but loving this band as I do I think it's good. What a lot of people don't know is about Arcade Fire is that they record all their material to vinyl then transfer to CD which gives a better sound. Being an old fart of the vinyl age I love vinyl and still buy albums on vinyl and when you do you find little magic shops like Normanrecords.com who sell a lot of little nuggets like this. Long live vinyl and long live Normanrecords. Thanks guys!!

Great to finally see Get Right and Crucified Again seeing the light of day! Reflektor was a fine album and its not a surprise to see why even these two great songs didn't make into the album - simply because the material was already that good. However, Get Right is up there as one of Arcade Fire's finest songs to date and I can't help but wonder how much more critical acclaim the album may have received if it was included on the album (maybe in place of say Flashbulb Eyes or Here Comes The Night Time pt 2). It is definitely worth a listen for anyone who likes Arcade Fire and this bluesy territory is something I'd like to see Arcade Fire return to on their next album.
Crucified Again may not be up to the standard of Get Right and the material on Reflektor but it is still an interesting song and gives you more of an insight into the band's relationship with Haiti.
Overall the Get Right single is another great addition to an already brilliant catalogue of music from an excellent band. Long may they continue!
