Arcade Fire opened up this season of Saturday Night Live by premiering five new songs from their upcoming 4th LP, Reflektor. The Brothers Butler and rest of the merry band of Canadians not only premiered a new song during the performance, but also three more in a TV special that followed the performance called Here Comes The Night.
The 30-minute special that aired following their late-night performance also premiered more songs from the record, including, “Here Comes the Night Time,” “We Exist,” and “Normal Person.” Also spotted in the featurette were cameos from James Franco, Bono, Ben Stiller, Bill Hader, Zach Galifianakis, Aziz Ansari, and Michael Cera. Watch the replay here.

Reflektor, one of our most anticipated albums of the fall, is out October 28 on Merge.
