Arcade Fire are back, and they’re getting political! On Election Night, the band made a special appearance on Stephen Colbert’s Election Night 2020 Special. As the musical guests on the show, which aired on SHOWTIME due to election coverage on CBS, the band performed a new song called “Generation A”.
Colbert described the song as being “inspired by the current climate of the country”. It is also being deemed as a “hopeful message to the youth”. This is the band’s first performance of new music since the release of their 2017 album, Everything Now.
