Last month, after the passing of their friend and collaborator David Bowie, Arcade Fire paid tribute to the man in traditional New Orleans style. Inside and outside the famed Preservation Hall, they gave him a second line parade, a jazz funeral. We posted a bunch of videos immediately after the parade, but now Arcade Fire have put together their own professionally shot and edited video of the whole affair. It’s quite a spectacle, and it includes the band’s funked-up cover of Bowie’s “Heroes.” Check it out below.
New life goal for all of us: Move to New Orleans (or become musical legends) so we can have something like this when we die.
