Back in June Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler remixed "Sex Music," a song by BEAK>, the trio led by Portishead's Geoff Barrow (along with Billy Fuller and Will Young). Now Barrow has returned the favor and remixed Arcade Fire's "Creature Comfort," a song from their new album, Everything Now, released last month via Columbia. Renamed "Comfort My Sleng Teng (Geoff Barrow Mix)," this dancehall version originally appeared on the promo CD found in Creature Comfort brand cereal boxes Arcade Fire gave away in Dublin to promote the album, but it can now be heard below.

Read our review of Arcade Fire's Everything Now.

Arcade Fire had previously shared a video for the album's title track, "Everything Now," announced a tour, and shared a funny fake cereal ad/teaser video for another song from the album, "Creature Comfort," as well as a full on video for "Creature Comfort" and an annotated version of the "Creature Comfort" video. Then there were videos for two other new songs, "Signs of Life" and "Electric Blue."

Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter and Pulp's Steve Mackey produced Everything Now with the band, with co-production by Markus Dravus. The album was recorded in three different countries: at Boombox Studios in New Orleans, Sonovox Studios in Montreal, and Gang Recording Studio in Paris.
