With a new album looming, Arcade Fire on Saturday night treated a small group of fans in New Orleans to some new material.
The band is scheduled to close out the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience tonight. And according to The Times-Picayune, they arrived in town early and performed unannounced at the Secondline Stages film production facility, with fewer than 200 in attendance for the private show.

The performance comes as Arcade Fire's Will Butler said back in June he could see the band's next full-length could be out by the spring, although he cautioned they weren't following a "definite schedule."
Cell phones were not allowed at Saturday's show, but for those unable to attend that intimate performance, perhaps their Sunday night set will also include a preview of the forthcoming record.
