"Wild Things" trailer features new version of Arcade Fire song

As you probably know, Apple posted the first trailer for Spike Jonze’s new “Where the Wild Things Are” movie today. The music in that trailer excited me a lot more than the movie itself. I consider any new Arcade Fire song a big deal, since their last album came out 2 years ago, with only a few tidbits since then. “Wake Up” isn’t a new song, but you’ll notice the version in the trailer is different than the album version (acoustic vs. electric guitar, and the vocals are different). So it looks like Arcade Fire may have recorded a new track for the trailer & maybe for the movie itself. Maybe we’ll see a new album this year.
