The Arcade Fire: The Suburbs Deluxe Edition Out August 2nd - Stream

The deluxe edition reissue of Arcade Fire's Grammy winning album, The Suburbs, hits shelves August 2nd via Merge (pre-order). Along with the two previously unreleased tracks, “Speaking In Tongues” and “Culture War”, the special edition also includes an extended remix of “Ready to Start” and a demo of “Sprawl I”. But that's not all... there's also an extended version of "Wasted Hours," Spike Jonze's short film, Scenes From The Suburbs (the short was directed by Spike Jonze and co-written by Jonze, Will and Win Butler), plus an 80-page booklet.

This is how Merge Records describes the package on their website:
