Arcade Fire swiftly released a calmly eccentric video for “You Already Know,” the fourth since the October 2013 release of Reflektor. Shot from the first-person perspective, the video seems conventional…until the lead vocals emerge from a moving mouth of a painting on the wall.
The washed-out, spinning shots of Arcade Fire performing in an upstairs bedroom are obviously missing frontman Win Butler, who directed the video. Keyboard player Régine Chassagne finally carries a mirror into the room, smiling, revealing her husband as the man behind the camera, at which point Butler immediately sings his titular line, “you already know.”
You can watch the video below and catch the band on tour through the end of August:
