After sharing a teaser last week, Arcade Fire have released their new video for Signs of Life. Directed by digital artists Jillian Mayer and Lucas Leyva, the visual follows two special agents on a day of cultural activities.
During their journey, they discover signs that lead them to the discovery of an elixir at a strange laboratory in a swamp. Later, they are led to an encounter with an old foe – who is defeated – and the clip ends with one of the agents cradling a hen. It’s romantic, thrilling, mysterious and slightly trippy all at once.
The track is from the band’s forthcoming album Everything Now, which is set to land on 28 July. So far, the two singles Everything Now and Creature Comfort have been released. Watch the video in the player above.
