Arcade Fire have revealed that they are already working on a new studio album, the follow-up to last year’s Neon Bible.

Co-founder of the group Win Butler has expressed that Arcade Fire would probably release new material sooner than anyone expected at first and that they are already halfway through writing new songs.

Speaking to Uncut sister-title NME, Butler explains that: “None of us want to take three years making a record. It could be that we’ll play live [soon] and maybe we’ll end up bashing it [another album] out fast. We’re in the middle of writing, things are coming together, it’s a great feeling.”

Win Butler also adds in the interview (in this week’s issue, out June 24) that he’s even considering playing live shows again. He says that even though exhausted after the last tour, he feels ready again: “If you had asked me six months ago I’d be like ‘No, I’m good.’ But now I go to a gig and I get the little…I can imagine being on that stage. It’s the step before you actually go and do it.”
