While we're still a ways away from Arcade Fire's follow-up to The Suburbs, the tidbits keep trickling in. Now there's confirmation that the Grammy-winners are working with LCD Soundsystem guru James Murphy in the studio.

"They're in with James Murphy on three or so songs, plus Markus Dravs who is a long-time collaborator," says manager Scott Rodger in Music Week. "They write too many songs—that's a good problem to have. There's around 35 songs with Arcade Fire, two albums' worth for sure."

Two albums' worth?! And some of it's probably that "fun, dance-y and groovy" stuff the good people of Montreal got to hear live last weekend at a secret Arcade Fire gig. Yes, please!
