Arcade Fire Releases Lyric Video for 'Afterlife'


In the nearly-six-minute clip, the lyrics of the song appear in front of the footage of 1958 Brazilian film entitled 'Black Orpheus'.

After premiering their new single "Afterlife" on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show, Arcade Fire releases a creative lyric video to go along with the tune. The lyrics of the song are displayed over some scenes from Marcel Camus' "Black Orpheus", a retelling of the Greek legend in which Orpheus descends into the Underworld to find his love, Eurydice.

As for the new song itself, "Afterlife" is a highly-danceable track that mixes twinkling synths with breathy hooks. "Afterlife, oh my God, what an awful word/ After all the breath and the dirt and the fires that burn/ And after all this time, and after all the ambulances go/ And after all the hangers-on are done hanging on to the dead lights," the band sings.

"Afterlife" was performed by the Canadian rockers on the premiere episode of this season's "Saturday Night Live". The track serves as the second single off their upcoming fourth studio album, "Reflektor".

The new record is set to arrive on Tuesday, October 29 via Merge Records. The album's title track was released as the lead single. "Here Comes the Night Time", "We Exist" and "Normal Person" were later dropped as promotional singles.
