Last night Arcade Fire covered Echo And The Bunnymen at London’s Earls Court. Tonight they played another show at the venue, and debuted another cover — the Smiths b-side “London” — with Will Butler on lead vocals. (Arcade Fire previously covered “Still Ill” back in ’07.) Tonight’s show was broadcast on XFM and a radio rip of “London” has already surfaced. Listen below.

You can also listen to a recording of the entire show below.

Noted Arcade Fire fan Lorde (check out her favorite songs by the band here) opened the show.
