Gotta love Arcade Fire's approach to "alerting the media" about progress on their most recent album, Suburbs. Good-old-fashioned paper correspondence (the stamp is a great touch).

Here's to hoping the United States Postal Service is able to adapt to the reality of online bill paying, email and the like.

I used to write,
I used to write letters I used to sign my name
I used to sleep at night
Before the flashing lights settled deep in my brain

But by the time we met
By the time we met the times had already changed

So I never wrote a letter
I never took my true heart I never wrote it down
So when the lights cut out
I was left standing in the wilderness downtown

Now our lives are changing fast
Hope that something pure can last

- "We Used To Wait" by Arcade Fire
