Is David Bowie set to feature on the new Arcade Fire album?

UPDATE: Listen to the leaked Arcade Fire single here, it seems to feature Bowie.

Arcade Fire’s ridiculously-awaited new album is set to drop next month, with LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy already confirmed to have handled production work on the release. Now it appears that said album could also include one David Bowie.

The record, expected to be called Reflektor, will be released on 28 October, with rumours circulating that Bowie will play some part on the LP.

The Sun claim that Bowie joined both the Canadian band and Murphy at New York’s Electric Lady Studios during the recording sessions surrounding the album. This could very well be the case, considering Bowie is a well-known fan of the group.

Attempting to get to the bottom of the matter, Consequence of Sound pressed the band’s publicist, who “can neither confirm or deny” the story to be either true or false.

Arcade Fire are set to release the title-track from the record on Monday (9 September). Watch Bowie perform ‘Wake Up’ with them below:
