Arcade Fire were the musical guests on Stephen Colbert’s election special last night (Nov. 3), which was officially titled Stephen Colbert’s Election Night 2020: Democracy’s Last Stand: Building Back America Great Again Better 2020.
The band debuted a new song, “Generation A,” which Colbert introduced as “inspired by the current climate of the country, with a hopeful message to the youths.”
Arcade Fire’s last album, Everything Now, came out in 2017, following 2010’s The Suburbs, which turned 10 this year. A couple of months ago, Arcade Fire’s Will Butler released his second solo album, Generations, via Merge Records.
