Arcade Fire's 'Reflektor' Is Everything We Hoped and Dreamed

Over the weekend, many of you may have already gotten a chance to hear the new Arcade Fire single "Reflektor" prematurely as a supposed stream was leaked prior to its promised 9/9/9 official release. For those of us who were away from their computers during our days of rest (and imbibing), the band's recently unveiled, interactive music video for the song was our first taste, and it was pretty damned good. The video, which was directed by Vincent Morisset, takes us to a place very familiar to Arcade Fire, Haiti, where a young woman travels between her world and our own, as you are permitted to manipulate the visual experience with your webcam and/or mouse. Watch the trailer.



Watch the full video here. We also found on Tumblr a stream of "Reflektor", which apparently hosts some backing vocals from David Bowie, although that hasn't yet been confirmed.



Arcade Fire has also been announced as the premiere musical guest for the upcoming season of Saturday Night Live, where they'll perform alongside host Tina Fey on September 28th.
