"I'm working on a really great song at the moment: Arcade Fire's new single," Corbijn told the Daily Beast. "The song is called 'Reflektor' and you'll be able to see it Monday evening."

The band has been notoriously cryptic regarding the details of their new album, but confirmed yesterday in a video clip that something Arcade Fire-related would be released on September 9th at 9 p.m. Turns out, it's the video for the lead single off the band's upcoming fourth LP, due out on October 29th.

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
