Band working with Neon Bible producer

Arcade Fire are currently working on their third studio album with producer Markus Dravs, it has been revealed.

For the last six months, Dravs - who produced the band's second album Neon Bible - has been with Win Butler and co in the studio.

Arcade Fire have been very secretive about the sessions, with Mumford and Sons' Marcus Mumford letting slip that Dravs was working with the band.

He told BBC 6 Music: "I don't know if I’m allowed to say this but yeah, he’s working on the next Arcade Fire record at the moment. I'm sure that’s public knowledge, because he’s been there for about six months.

"I keep asking Markus how it’s going and he's like, 'Yeah, it’s okay'," he said. "And I'm like, 'What are the songs like?' And he goes, 'Better'."
