Deluxe Arcade Fire

Posted by: Kyle Huntington (04/19/11)
Arcade Fire will release a deluxe edition of their album The Suburbs on June 27. The new version will include a "making of" documentary, Spike Jonze's Scenes From The Suburbs film and two new tracks titled "Speaking In Tongues" and "Culture War", both of which will be premiered on Zane Lowe's radio show on May 23.

Why do some bands release deluxe versions of albums way after their debut?
Fans will already have the album, are they supposed to buy it twice?

I get that some will have a deep connection to the album, and will get this anyway, but this feels wrong to me.

I agree, I don't like it when bands do this (neither do I when Hollywood does, releasing a special edition 6 months after the original) BUT, this album was so good I'll be buying this without a doubt! I still spin 'Suburbs' almost every day!! And two new tracks is extremely exciting, I just wonder why the actual documentary isn't included, I'd spend 25 bucks for a combo of the two!

geez, I didn't even notice it was only the "making of". Hope you find the deluxe version to be cool anyway. A great album, for sure.

edit: nevermind. total brainfart here.

this just goes to show what joining a large label does to artists. deluxe, extra, bonus, more, exclusive. but hang on, ITS THE SAME THING.

I'm with you on this, I wish bands would release deluxe editions when the album comes out only.

It's a documentary that documents the "Making of" The Suburbs.

Yeah, I wasn't sure what people were talking about, because I didn't think they were expecting to see a making of a "making of the album" documentary, but apprarently they were.

You got it, though.
