Arcade Fire Cover Harry Styles’ 'As It Was' in BBC Live Lounge

After releasing their latest album WE last week, Arcade Fire headed to the BBC Live Lounge to play some tunes for listeners. Not only did they perform "The Lightning I, II” and “Age of Anxiety II (Rabbit Hole)” from their new record, they also did their own rendition of Harry Styles' hit single "As It Was."

The video of the performance was uploaded by the BBC earlier today (May 12). With xylophones and bell sounds, the band gave the popular song from the forthcoming Harry's House some additional quirky charm. Singer Win Butler replaced Harry's name for his own during the line "Harry you're no good alone." Régine Chassagne also contributed some vocals, stepping up for the song's bridge.

Since releasing WE, Arcade Fire have been very busy. They released the “Unconditional I (Lookout Kid)” video and performed on Saturday Night Live last week. They also announced a massive tour featuring dates with Beck and Feist.

As for the highly-anticipated Harry’s House, the album is set for release next Friday, May 20.

Watch Arcade Fire's cover of "As It Was" - as well as their other BBC Live Lounge performances - below.
