Arcade Fire Release Two Reflektor Videos
Shortly after unveiling the new interactive video for new song "Reflektor," Arcade Fire has issued another, more traditional video for the song, a black and white affair handled by famed director, Anton Corbijn.
"I'm working on a really great song at the moment: Arcade Fire's new single," Corbijn told The Daily Beast last week. "The song is called 'Reflektor,' and you'll be able to see it Monday evening." The artsy, conceptual video features the band sporting massive head masks of the individual members' faces and climbing into the back of what looks like a military vehicle.
Lead singer Win Butler is depicted at the wheel, with his wife and co-vocalist Regine Chassagne riding shotgun. The nearly eight-minute video goes on to involve disco balls, a man in a mirrored suit and lots of wandering around an empty field. See it for yourself above.
And for the interactive video, you can use your mouse, tablet or mobile device and control the effects used in the video. The video was written, directed and produced by longtime Arcade Fire collaborator Vincent Morisset, and filmed in Jacmel, Haiti.

David Bowie has also confirmed (via his Facebook page) that, as rumored, that's him providing background vocals on "Reflektor." Check both versions out here.
