Arcade Fire’s Mesmerizing Cover of Lorde’s “Green Light”

We stumbled upon Arcade Fire‘s BBC Radio 1 Lounge session and we felt the NEED to share it with you all because of how amazing it is. 🙌

For part of their performance, with the full band on hand, Arcade Fire tackled Lorde’s “Green Light”, and truly made it their own. Win Butler shared most of the vocals along with Régine Chassagne, though they did have some background vocal help from other band members as well as a group of teens. 

The most unique part of this track was when Régine belted out the pre-chorus, singing it in a much higher pitch than Lorde does in the original. She really did show off her vocal chops there! 👏
