Lately Arcade Fire have taken to the stage at charity performances to road-test a new track, “Crucified Again,” and now it’s made its way to the internet. In subject matter and general vibe it sounds like something you might find on Neon Bible - it’s another slow-jamming Win Butler meditation on religion and hypocrisy, underlined by a nervous, insistent buildup. We’re loving this discordant violins, and Regine Chassagne on drums. Check out this video captured by a lucky YouTuber at Partners in Health’s 25th birthday celebration in New York – don’t be fooled by the mediocre image quality, the audio’s just fine.
