    A few months ago a live video of John Legend and The Roots covering Arcade Fire's "Wake Up" hit the net. It was, of course immediately connected to Legend and the Roots' cover album, Wake Up!. However, despite the shared title, the studio version of the tune didn't make the album and was never released... until now.

    The tune is currently streaming at Pitchfork. They don't seem to be sharing an embed, so head there to listen. It's a fairly faithful cover in the more polished, groovier style of Legend and the Roots, save for a much jazzier outro that showcases the Roots' superior sense of groove and tight musicianship. It is, unfortunately, still not available for purchase.

    For those of you who don't own Wake Up! yet and would like to, there's no time like the present to get a copy - it's on sale for only $1.99 at Amazon for today only. -peter menniti
