Watch Arcade Fire perform the songs "Normal Person" and "Afterlife" and do an interview with Stephen Colbert. Apparently, the band is now the "Steely Dan" of Canada. The band will also be on NPR today, for a live "First Listen" session.
The new Arcade Fire album Reflektor will be out Oct. 29, a week after the Colbert Report TV appearance. The album is available for pre-order now, and has vinyl, CD and download. Super fans can even go for the double double -- which is to say the CD and vinyl double album as one package. Yes they really are offering that. There's seven songs on the first disc and six on the second, and the download comes with a digital booklet.
