Details arise on the secret Arcade Fire and Spike Jonze collaboration
It’s about time we finally find out what the hell the duo of director Spike Jonze and the best band in the world, Arcade Fire, have been working on all this time.
A project that has been rumored for a few months now was a subject that was recently brought up in an interview with Pitchfork, where Arcade Fire’s frontman, Win Butler, decided to let the light shine on the much talked about project. Read what he said, after the jump.
According to the enigmatic artist, the project isn’t a music video, but apparently a short film, which will play as a “science fiction companion piece” to their recently released album, the hotly anticipated album The Suburbs, which hit store shelves today. It was written by Jonze, Butler, and Butler’s brother, and is based on an idea that Butler had when he was younger for a science fiction film.
Butler goes on to say that it won’t be too unlike Jonze’s recent masterpiece, the short film I'M HERE, which for all intents and purposes, is one of the best pieces of cinema in a very long time. Personally, I’m a massive fan of both Jonze and Arcade Fire, so the idea of seeing the two of them get together to make beautiful art is music to my ears both sonically and cinematically.
