In about two weeks, Arcade Fire will unleash their fifth studio album, Everything Now. In the meantime, the indie rockers are in full promo-blitz mode, and their latest stop landed them in BBC’s famed Live Lounge.
As is custom, Arcade Fire were tasked with performing a live cover of a fellow artist’s song. They chose Lorde’s exuberant Melodrama single “Green Light,” with frontman Win Butler thanking “our Lorde” for “fighting the good fight.” Backed by a youth choir, Règine Chassagne handled main vocal duties, while the rest of the band transformed “Green Light” into a hell of a spirited rocker. Lorde would certainly be proud (and she'd probably dance her ass off, too).
Check out a clip of the performance below, and hear the full audio here, starting at the 2:25:00 mark.
