6. The muted guitar part on “Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)” isn’t how it was originally intended
Win Butler: For “Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)”, I went to record the guitar part alone, put my headphones on, and it sounded amazing. I said to myself, “I did it.” And then it turns out Howard forgot to put the guitar mic on. He only had the vocal mic on and it was on the other side of the room, and accidentally no one turned it off. That’s the track that’s on the record. If you really listen to it, it sounds insane, it almost sounds like a broken record.
