Published Oct 21, 2013After repeated teasers and live performances, it's finally here: the studio version of Arcade Fire's track "Afterlife" has arrived.
Zane Lowe premiered the song on his BBC Radio 1 program. As we've heard from live renditions, the song is an atmospheric dance-rock track that mixes twinkling synths with breathy hooks and the band's usual sense of dramatic gravitas. Hear it below [via Arcade Fire Tube]
Reflektor is due out October 29 on Merge.
UPDATE: an official lyric video can now be watched below.
