“The Reflektor Tapes,” a documentary about the making of Arcade Fire’s highly acclaimed 2013 album and its subsequent tour, will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival before getting a full release on Sept. 23.
“Sound is happening all around you, and notes and rhythms are happening all around you,” the Canadian band says in the film’s official trailer.
Directed by filmmaker Khalil Joseph, the movie covers the album’s inception in Jamaica, the recording process in Montreal as well as concerts in Haiti, Los Angeles and London.
“The Reflektor Tapes” will also include a previously unreleased track, along with 15 minutes of never before seen footage.
“Reflektor” was ranked No. 5 on Rolling Stone’s list of 2013’s 50 Best Albums.
In March, band members Win Butler and Régine Chassagne teamed with A-list music stars to announce their partnership with Jay Z’s streaming service, Tidal.
