Hear Arcade Fire Cover The Smiths’ “London” In London
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.

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