This past weekend Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler was the celebrity guest on NPR’s news quiz show Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me. As they do with their well-known guests, they asked him funny questions that played off his profession or name, in this case they were about arcade games. They also talked to him about his basketball playing and Butler jokingly boasted that he could take on the full lineup of The Decemberists at one time. Listen to the whole segment below.

Arcade Fire’s latest album, Everything Now, was released in July via Columbia.

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.”
