Jonze directs new Arcade Fire video


The new Arcade Fire video for The Suburbs, directed by filmmaker Spike Jonze, is now ready for online viewing.

Like the band’s groundbrea­king interactiv­e video for We Used to Wait, the new short film takes us back to the actual suburbs — to the pre-fab houses, fast-food restaurant­s and highway overpasses of Texas, not far from where the band’s frontman, Win Butler, grew up.

Back in August, Butler revealed that the band had spent some time shooting a short film with Spike Jonze, describing the piece as being “like a science-fiction B-movie companion piece for the record.”
