(Gibson) It's been confirmed that David Bowie appears on the new Arcade Fire album "Reflektor." Bowie recorded with the band at the Electric Lady studios in New York.

Bowie a long-standing fan of Arcade Fire joined them on stage at the Fashion Rocks event in New York in September 2005 and then again later that month at the city's CMJ Music Marathon one of his most recent live performances.

Arcade Fire's Win Butler has told the BBC that Reflektor will "surprise people." He says, "I think in Connecticut we were playing maybe 50 or 60 songs, like we literally played 60 songs while we were there and then kind of slowly refined it.

"It's longer than [2010 album] The Suburbs it's a double record mostly down to the fact that the songs are a lot longer. I mean, "Reflektor" is seven-and-a-half, there's another couple of seven-minute songs on the record and so it made more sense to stretch it out to two records with two distinct sides. It's more of a classic double LP vibe where you have to flip the side and it takes you to a different place." more on this story
