David Bowie Helped Arcade Fire With 'Reflektor'

Sep 10, 2013

David Bowie's Facebook page has verified what many assumed after listening to Arcade Fire's new single, "Reflektor": Bowie contributed to the bouncy, epic rock track.

"We can confirm that David Bowie has supplied a brief backing vocal on the James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) produced track (no saxophone though), which is being issued under the alias of The Reflektors," Bowie's online presence posted on Monday night. (Too bad about the saxophone; that part is boss.)

Arcade Fire's return single has been so big that the band found room for two music videos to support the song: an interactive clip (fire up that webcam!) and the video above, directed by Michel Gondry Spike Jonze Anton Corbijn. Watch now.
