Arcade Fire’s massive new album Reflektor has just come out, but don’t think for a second that the Canadian indie-rock superstars are done just yet. The band have already released a video for “Reflektor” as well as a video of their whole album synced with the 1959 film Black Orpheus, but their new video for single “Afterlife” finds them going in a different direction. Directed by Emily Kai Bock (“Yet Again” by Grizzly Bear), the video follows the story of a cowboy hat-wearing man and his two sons as their dreams carry them to places unexpected and very expected.

Reflektor is out now via Merge Records. You can read our thoughts on Reflektor in the upcoming issue of Elmore Magazine. Watch the video for “Afterlife” below:
