Today in "We're Not Actually Sure What's Going On Here", Arcade Fire is set to do, well, something on September 9th. Earlier in the month, an Instagram account appeared that was posting street art featuring the word 'Reflektor'. Rumours floating around claim that this is to be the title of the new Arcade Fire album, produced by LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy and set for release October 29th.

There is no confirmation as to whether this account is any way officially affiliated with Arcade Fire but this hasn't stopped the rumour mill churning out tales. It went into overdrive yesterday when, instead of posting the street art like it had done most days, the Instagram account merely posted "9pm 9/9" indicating that something was set to happen at 9pm on September 9th.

A new song? More album details? Live dates? The coming Arcade Fire based apocalypse? We have pretty much no idea what is going on, but it’s always fun to speculate.
