Arcade Fire Releases Track Listing for New Album in Very Unusual Way

I’ve never really understood the point of releasing the tracklisting of a yet-to-be-released album. There’s very little we can parse from most song titles before we can actually hear the songs or read the lyrics, so why bother? The only thing I can come up with is that fans might want to know what new material to expect if they go see the act before the album is released.

That being said, a Twitter account called Everything Now, which went online June 3, has turned the release of the tracklisting for their upcoming Everything Now album into a puzzle game. Follow the tweets. Anyone know of a link where someone has figured everything out?
