Arcade Fire build albums to last
Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler hopes the band's latest album doesn't end up becoming a "memo".
The 'We Used To Wait' hitmaker said he appreciates in the digital age how easily records can bypass people, and hopes the band's latest album 'The Suburbs' can stand the test of time.
He said: "I hope that something pure can last. A lot of things like that end up being memos.
"I keep trying to remember the good things that get lost along the way and trying to apply those lessons to the way the world actually is."
Win also said that he doesn't believe that the concept of the album is dying out and despite the popularity of downloading individual tracks and falling record sales Arcade Fire will continue to make full albums.
He added: "I've been moved by albums a lot more than I've been moved by singles, and we're an album band. I'm not going to stop making albums because of some fad of digital distribution.
"The idea that you just have to make bad cheap stuff and sell it cheaply because the format changes, to me, is crazy. It's more important than ever to me to have the artwork and the recording be as great as they can be."Posted on 15 Dec 2010 06:30 to category : Music News
