    link for paid books of


    Although payed exists (the reason why autocorrection didn't help you), it is only correct in:

    • Nautical context, when it means to paint a surface, or to cover with something like tar or resin in order to make it waterproof or corrosion-resistant. The deck is yet to be payed.

    • Payed out when letting strings, cables or ropes out, by slacking them. The rope is payed out! You can pull now.

    Unfortunately, I was unable to find nautical or rope-related words in your comment.

    [–]WeselampOh Awful Eurydice 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    The correct word is 'shut' not 'shout'

    oh this is exciting. i can’t read notation - can anyone tell me what this sounds like??

    [–]BordonGrown[S] 8 points9 points  (1 child)

    From my very limited knowledge of notation, I couldn’t recognise it. Wonder whether it’s something from the new album?

    [–]yagretbigwazak 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    that’s definitely what i was thinking

    [–]the-boxmanNeon Bible 27 points28 points  (0 children)

    Holy shit! This reminds me of the Moon Shaped Pool postcards.

    [–]yagretbigwazak 5 points6 points  (1 child)

    just noticed you’re in the UK as well, hoping i might receive one now!

    [–]BordonGrown[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Fingers crossed!

    [–]MorganRFC"We'll go at it alone" 4 points5 points  (2 children)

    Ohhh exciting! Please let this be the band

    [–]the-boxmanNeon Bible 5 points6 points  (1 child)

    It has to be, look at the logo. AF.

    [–]MorganRFC"We'll go at it alone" 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    I was seriously struggling to identify the AF, got it now 😂 Well then...

    [–]the-boxmanNeon Bible 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    I really hope I get one of these. This is it! We are in a new era.

    [–]SilverSkies15Everything Now 34 points35 points  (3 children)

    [–]charles_peugeot405 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    Do you have some examples so we can compare?

    [–]rfamico 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Yes. I’ll share later today.

    here's her handwritten lyrics to laika they posted a few years ago! https://twitter.com/arcadefire/status/1173268324928708609?t=wvacFiQtJQnxUlh3LPqGUg&s=19

    [–]Much-Ad7486 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    Lol that's not weird that you know that??

    [–]rfamico 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I got a postcard from them one year

    [–]rfamico 3 points4 points  (3 children)

    Can someone play the notes?

    [–]Pughsli 10 points11 points  (2 children)

    [–]rfamico 10 points11 points  (1 child)

    Thanks! Already my favorite song

    [–]Lennon2217 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    It’s up there with Hey Jude, Stairway To Heaven and Jesus Walks for sure.

    [–]Pughsli 47 points48 points  (6 children)

    If anyone wants to hear what the music sounds like it should sound something like this.

    Just realized I played this on my D standard guitar so it's a step down from the notation. Oops.

    [–]iredditireddit 2 points3 points  (3 children)

    Sounds very generic arcade fire ngl

    [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    It's just the pentatonic played pretty straight. Whole time was thinking, "the way af will play this will bring it to life" I believe that

    [–]grub-worm 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Thanks for doing this!

    [–]drive_roxley 13 points14 points  (1 child)

    WE -> Win's handwriting

    missed you -> Régine's handwriting 💁

    [–]Much-Ad7486 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

    This post -> creepy

    [–]DontGetNEBigIdeasAfterlife 22 points23 points  (0 children)

    Wonder if people who got postcards all got the same riff, or if they split the song into a bunch of pieces and mailed it out.

    Would be a cool way to sort of crowdsource the song and see if we can piece it back together before release

    Edit: someone posted another postcard with different notes. Guess I was right?

    [–]ILoveToWiggle 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    love the new AF logo

    [–]LocoRocoomy heart is a banana 2 points3 points  (0 children)


    [–]rue_laurent 6 points7 points  (1 child)

    Do you have an idea why AF would have your address? I remember buying tix to the EN show and receiving EN cds in the mail...but that was through Ticket Master.

    [–]BordonGrown[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Have bought most albums on vinyl from their store since the suburbs - also got the her soundtrack recently so assume it’s that.

    [–]deBASHmodeSing the chorus again (wait fot it) 3 points4 points  (4 children)

    Postcard recipients all in the UK, correct?

    [–]Kralctemme 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    USA here, just got one in the mail today

    [–]deBASHmodeSing the chorus again (wait fot it) 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    What part of the US? Curious to see how far they're spreading. (Im)patiently waiting for one in CA. :)

    [–]force-ten_gale 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I just received one today in Canada. Wasn’t sure what it was at first, as I haven’t been paying attention and didn’t recognize the new logo. Remembered hearing that Arcade Fire was about to release something… checked their Twitter and boom there it was… getting excited now!

    [–]Tighten_Up 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    I will be walking through all the hippest neighborhoods (hehe) in LA this weekend looking for stuff like this. I was at an event before Reflektor was announced and someone was handing out those fans on a stick with the logo printed on them.

    [–]aseriouscontributorSacred Sighs 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Any idea how people got these to begin with? I live in London and I’m hoping I get one too !

    [–]BordonGrown[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    The only thing I can think of is that I’ve bought stuff from their store

    [–]jessekg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I tried this one on piano. Pretty melody https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMLDGTUBg/

    [–]vapenaysh6969 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    How did you get this /: I’ve been a bad fan recently
