Arcade Fire have shared the track they have recorded for the forthcoming Peter Gabriel covers album 'And I’ll Scratch Yours'.

The album is the sequel to Gabriel's 2010 album 'Scratch My Back' which saw the singer covering songs by Radiohead, Neil Young, Arcade Fire, Bon Iver and David Byrne. All of the artists Gabriel covered on the album have now returned the favour and covered Gabriel songs for the release. Scroll down to hear Arcade Fire cover 'Games Without Frontiers'.

All but two of the artists who have recorded covers of Gabriel songs were featured on 'Scratch My Back'. Radiohead and Neil Young were not able to contribute, with their places taken by Joseph Arthur and Feist respectively. A post on Peter Gabriel's website reveals that Lou Reed has chosen to "radically reinterpret" 'Solsbury Hill' while Brian Eno's version of 'Mother Of Violence' is described as "frighteningly futuristic". Elsewhere on the album are covers by Elbow ('Mercy Street') and Regina Spektor ('Blood Of Eden').

Earlier this week, producer James Murphy revealed that he had finished work on the forthcoming studio album from Arcade Fire, which will be released on October 29.
