Arcade Fire Covers Blondie’s 1978 Hit ‘Heart of Glass’ [Video]

Arcade Fire have been pulling out surprise cover songs at nearly every stop on their current tour. At their show in Houston the other night, they took it to another level when they covered Blondie’s 1978 classic song ‘Heart of Glass.’

Regine Chassagne took over lead vocals on the Blondie song, which they merged with their own ‘Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)’ from ‘The Suburbs.’ You can watch video of the performance above.

It’s always a thrill to hear the excellent ‘Heart of Glass.’

Arcade Fire is taking a break from its tour to play Coachella this weekend and next.

The band will then wrap up its U.S. dates before heading to Europe and then back again for another North American leg. Check out Arcade Fire’s website to see a complete list of dates.
