Arcade Fire released their new album, Everything Now, last week via their new label Columbia. Last night the band stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform two songs from the album, title track “Everything Now” aired in the broadcast show and “Creature Comfort” was a web-exclusive performance. At the start of “Everything Now” there was also an amusing new Everything Now infomercial. Prior to the performance, Colbert shared a fake faxed list of demands from the band for playing the show, including that they would get to play five or six songs, that no one was to talk to Richard Reed Parry (even if he talked to them first), and that they required vegan hotdogs. Check out those tweets below, along with the two performances.

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.
