Arcade Fire - "Afterlife"


Given Reflektor's Orpheus and Eurydice-evoking cover art and track titles, it is fitting that Arcade Fire has appropriated footage from Marcel Camus' classic 1959 feature Black Orpheus for the lyric video of new single, "Afterlife." The band's take on dance music is no less compelling here than it was on the title track - they really know how to build on a groove, and thankfully, their lyrics have remained potent, evident right from the opening line, "Afterlife. Oh my god, what an awful word." Watch it above and enjoy!

Reflektor is due out October 28.
