The first single from the album, also named ‘Reflektor’, was released on 9th September, although fans were told they would have to wait until October 28th to hear the full album. However, after the album leaked illegally late on Thursday 24th, the band shared a YouTube video of the entire album on their official website and via Twitter.

The video stream is set to the 1959 film Black Orpheus, reported to be a major influence behind the album, and comes complete with overlaid lyrics.

Partly produced by former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy, Reflektor is an epic double album, over three years in the making.

Listen to Reflektor in full below and look out for our review of the album on these pages soon.
