Arcade Fire will release a deluxe CD/DVD version of its Album of the Year Grammy Award-winning third album The Suburbs August 2nd. Pre-order the CD + DVD Scenes from the Suburbs now in the Merge store.
The expanded CD version of The Suburbs sees the original album augmented by a longer version of the track “Wasted Hours (A Life That We Can Live),” as well as the previously unreleased “Culture War” and “Speaking In Tongues,” the latter of which features David Byrne on additional vocals.
Highlights of the DVD portion include the complete half-hour short film Scenes From The Suburbs, directed by Spike Jonze and hailed as “absolutely f–king gorgeous” by INDIEWIRE at its U.S. premiere at this year’s SXSW festival, the companion documentary Behind The Scenes From The Suburbs, and the music video for the track “The Suburbs.”
The package is rounded out by an exclusive booklet featuring lyrics and 80 pages of photos taken during the Scenes From The Suburbs film shoot.
