Canadian rock band recorded the album at spinner

Canadian band Arcade Fire released their fifth disc Everything Now, which numbers 13 songs on a USB-compatible spiner, in addition to traditional CD, vinyl and digital editions. Maybe it’s a fad, and probably the most common trolling. Understand.


Edition was on sale for $109 (six and a half thousand rubles at the rate of 60) on the band’s official website. For comparison, a CD costs $ 14, and a vintage vinyl — $ 18. Curious, what is the format of encoded music files? For the money I would like to get flac. However, to join the musical history still will not work — sold as the product, according to the band, was released “very limited” edition, writes the Verge.

Lovers sweepstakes

However, there is reason to believe it’s all a joke. Apart from the fact that the strange ergonomics of the USB stick in the spinner is likely to make it unsuitable for rotation, it is known that Arcade Fire loves practical jokes. For example, they brought a “fake” group Daft Punk on a festival of music and arts in the Coachella valley in Indio, California.

Why not?

Therefore, most likely, “album on spinner” is a joke. Perhaps Arcade Fire decided that the idea of combining the spinner and the stick is something from the field chindogu, or even as a metaphor, incomprehensible to ordinary mortals. Or they just released an ordinary USB flash drive with music in the form of a spinner. It is strange that the fans who bought the album, and has not signed off on the purchase.
