James Murphy producing the next Arcade Fire album?

James Murphy and Arcade Fire

BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe may have let the secret slip that James Murphy is producing the next Arcade Fire album. While interviewing Murphy last week, Lowe asked: "Can you talk about the AF record?". James replied: "No, no. That's not something I can talk about yet." Hear the full sound bite, below (via AF tube/LB4UB).

Back in 2010, the LCD frontman told Spin "There are other things I haven't been able to do because of [LCD Soundsystem]. Twice, I couldn't make an Arcade Fire record. I couldn't make a Spoon record. I couldn't work with John Cale or Devo. The plan was for this band to be part of my life, then it started to be the whole of my life." Hmm.
