Arcade Fire are currently in the promotional stage of their upcoming fifth studio album, Everything Now. Ahead of the LP’s arrival on July 28, the alternative rock band made a visit to BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, where they carried out the tradition of performing a cover song on the show. The song selection this time happened to be Lorde’s “Green Light,” of which they performed a phenomenal version with the help of a youth choir.
A portion of the performance can be watched in the clip below, and fans can click here to hear the full performance plus an interview with BBC Radio 1 host Clara Amfo (the interview and performances start around the 02:22:00 mark).
Arcade Fire will be heading out on their headlining world tour in promotion of Everything Now starting on Sept. 5 in their home Canadian province of Quebec. They won’t be alone either, having recruited supporting acts including Angel Olsen, Grandmaster Flash, Phantogram, Broken Social Scene and Preservation Hall Jazz Band to join them throughout the three-month run.
Tickets for select shows on their upcoming tour are on sale now, and can be purchased by clicking here.
