Radio station 107.7 The End just premiered “Ready To Start”, the first (US) single from Arcade Fire‘s new album The Suburbs.

Our first taste of “Ready To Start” was from live videos taken at recent Arcade Fire gigs. From the live version’s we got a song with a sharp guitar riff and a drum beat that is actually pretty danceable. These elements take an even fuller shape recorded. The song sounds even better. Hear the radio rip below:

You can pre-order the album from insound now, or buy it directly from the band.
