Arcade Fire released their new album, Everything Now, today via their new label Columbia. Now you can stream the whole thing below. While their albums are usually critically acclaimed, and The Suburbs won the Grammy for Album of the Year, Everything Now is getting a more mixed and even negative response from critics and fans, with some saying the songs aren’t memorable enough and others singling out specific lyrics that don’t work. What do you think of the album? Has the powerhouse band finally stumbled or is Everything Now just as good as their last album, Reflektor. Listen below and judge for yourself. (If you’d don’t prefer Spotify, they have also uploaded every song individually to their YouTube account.)

They had previously shared a video for the album’s title track, “Everything Now,” announced a tour, and shared a funny fake cereal ad/teaser video for another song from the album, “Creature Comfort,” as well as a full on video for “Creature Comfort” and an annotated version of the “Creature Comfort” video. Then there were videos for two other new songs, “Signs of Life” and “Electric Blue.”

Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter and Pulp’s Steve Mackey produced Everything Now with the band, with co-production by Markus Dravus. The album was recorded in three different countries: at Boombox Studios in New Orleans, Sonovox Studios in Montreal, and Gang Recording Studio in Paris. It will be released on CD, cassette, and heavyweight black vinyl LP, as well as digitally. The vinyl version “will feature 20 different artwork variants, each bearing the album title in one of 20 different languages.”

In January Arcade Fire released a brand new song, “I Give You Power,” that featured the guest vocals of soul legend and civil rights activist Mavis Staples. Its release the day before President Donald Trump’s inauguration was probably no accident, especially as all proceeds from the song are being donated to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). “I Give You Power” is not on the album.
