Arcade Fire was the music guest on Stephen Colbert’s special election program (titled Stephen Colbert’s Election Night 2020: The Last Place in Democracy: Building Great America Back for a Better 2020). The special program aired on SHOWTIME because the election results took over Colbert’s usual CBS broadcast time. The band performed a new song called “Generation A”, which Colbert said was “inspired by the current climate of the country” and called “a message of hope for young people.” See the band playing “Generation A” below.
Arcade Fire recently performed “Culture War” for the Eaux Claires Festival̵7;s “For Wisconsin” for the voting campaign. Arcade Fire’s final album Everything now debut in 2017. They recently promised that a new album is in the works and earlier this year, they celebrated the 10th anniversary of their 2010 album debut Suburb.
