Arcade Fire: 8 Suburbs Covers and 4 Tracks

Why is Arcade Fire releasing The Suburbs with eight not-so-different album covers? Pitchfork thinks it’s commentary on the suburbs themselves. I think it’s commentary + shrewd marketing towards music completionists like myself. Damnit.

Arcade Fire “The Suburbs”

Arcade Fire “Ready to Start”

Arcade Fire “Month of May”

Arcade Fire “Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)
