Arcade Fire have made a habit in these early days of their massive Reflektor tour to cover a different classic at each show. First there was a cover of “The Last Time” by the Rolling Stones in Louisville, and then video of Prince’s Controversy” in Minneapolis. Last night in Detroit the band performed Stevie Wonder’s “Uptight (Everything’s Alright)” while Win Butler wore a square mask with the face of disgraced former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick projected onto it. Watch the video below; it captures the whole song until it eventually shifts into “Here Comes The Night Time,” which is never a bad thing.

Reflektor is out now via Merge. It was one of our top 10 albums of 2013.
