Arcade Fire is teasing music in a REALLY clever way

Arcade Fire knows a thing or two about marketing, especially when it comes to building hype around a new release. Win Butler has been dropping hints that the band has spent much of the pandemic working on new music. And now there’s this tease.

Fans have been receiving postcards in the mail. On one side is the message “WE missed you” along with some musical notation. On the other is a weird drawing of an eye.

Wouldn’t it be great if someone offered us audio of the music transcription? A Reddit user named u/Pughsli did it. Most curious.
