Watch Arcade Fire debut two new songs, ‘The Lightning I, II’ and ‘Age of Anxiety’

The band performed the new songs at last night's (14th March) New Orleans surprise show.

Video footage of two new Arcade Fire tracks has appeared online, after the band played a last-minute surprise show in New Orleans last night (14th March).

The band streamed the full show – taking place at Toulouse Theatre – across their Instagram and TikTok accounts.

From that performance, fans grabbed footage of two new tracks – this week’s new single ‘The Lightning I, II’ and ‘Age of Anxiety’.

The latter takes parts of last year’s 45-minute long track ‘Memories of the Age of Anxiety’, recorded for the Headspace meditation app. ‘The Lighting I, II’, set to arrive in recorded form this Thursday (17th March), is a two-part epic that explodes with typical Arcade Fire energy in its second part. You can check both out below.

‘The Lightning I, II’ is set to debut at 6pm GMT / 2pm ET / 11am PT this coming Thursday.
