Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler has hinted that the band's next record may arrive quicker than expected.

In an interview with NME, Butler said: "None of us want to take three years making a record. It could be that we'll play live [soon] and maybe we'll end up bashing it [another album] out fast.

"We're in the middle of writing, things are coming together, it's a great feeling."

He also revealed the band had changed their mind about touring in the near future, adding: ""If you had asked me [about playing live] six months ago I'd be like 'No, I'm good'.

"But now I go to a gig and I get the little…I can imagine being on that stage. It's the step before you actually go and do it."
