Arcade Fire Unveil Second ‘Reflektor’ Video, Directed by Anton Corbijn
The Arcade Fire ‘Reflektor’ promotion juggernaut rages on, as the Montreal rockers have dropped a second video for the debut single from their forthcoming fourth album. The last ‘Reflektor’ clip, as you may recall from a few hours ago, was an “interactive short film” that puts your webcam to rather nifty use, and while this one, directed by Anton Corbijn, is far more conventional, it’s still pretty bonkers.
Corbijn’s ‘Reflektor’ visuals feature life-sized bobblehead versions of the Arcade Fire’s members, who jam out in the back of a military truck driven by husband-and-wife troupe leaders Win Butler and Regine Chassagne. Later, a mysterious human-disco-ball character shows up, and that’s when things really get interesting.
Scroll down to watch all eight gloriously funky minutes, and given that David Bowie recently confirmed his presence on this James Murphy-produced art-disco banger, go ‘head and start speculating it’s actually him in the mirrored suit, trying on yet another new persona. The ‘Reflektor’ album arrives Oct. 29 on Merge, roughly a month after the Arcade Fire join Tina Fey on the season premiere of ‘Saturday Night Live.’
