Arcade Fire Stream New Album After It Leaks

(Radio.com) With Arcade Fire in full-tilt pre-release promo mode for the band's new album, Reflektor, (including a recent "secret" show in Brooklyn reviewed by Radio.com), a single record store in Ireland jumped the gun and decided to start selling copies ahead of the official release date (Oct. 25 in Ireland), causing the band to stream the whole thing in its entirety.

According to Canada.com, the leak was first reported Wednesday (Oct. 23) by Arcade Fire Tube, a dedicated fan account on Twitter, going on to retweet a posting by an Irish shopper who was able to purchase two copies of Reflektor at Rollercoaster Records in Kilkenny, Ireland (the tweet with a photo of the purchased albums has since been deleted).

After someone who purchased Reflektor at Rollercoaster Records posted the album online, the band's management decided enough is enough and shut down the errant sales.
