Over the past six months, Win Butler has been sharing little snippets of new music from the studio.

Arcade Fire are yet to follow up their 2017 album Everything Now, and in a recent episode of Rick Rubin's Broken Record podcast, Butler spoke about Arcade Fire's plans to record a new album.

He revealed that during lockdown he's managed to write "two or three" more albums, but the current plan is for Arcade Fire to head "back to Texas to make the next record, during the election - so that’ll be fun."

Butler added, "This time around we’ve been in lockdown, [we] have a studio, have every keyboard, drum machine, piano - everything I could want - and fucking time." He continued, "The one piece that’s been missing is the time, and now the time is there."

The Arcade Fire lead vocalist also noted that he can't remember a more productive writing period, "Once your body’s already going, there’s no stopping it, so I’ve just been writing. I can’t remember a time when I’ve written more. Feels like being 18, just sitting at a piano for five days in a row just working on a melody for a verse."

Last month Win Butler's brother Will Butler released his new solo album Generations.
