Arcade Fire have joined forces with Tina Fey in the promos for the new season of Saturday Night Live.

Scroll down to watch the band with the guest host for the season premiere, which will air Stateside tomorrow night (September 28). Arcade Fire will perform on the show, likely playing material from their forthcoming new album, 'Reflektor'. In one of the clips, the band are sporting the papier mâché heads that they are seen wearing in the video for their recent single, also called 'Reflektor'.



Arcade Fire recently confirmed the full 13 song, double album tracklisting. New single 'Reflektor' is the album's opening track, and is followed by 'We Exist', 'Flashbulb Eyes', 'Here Comes The Night Time', 'Normal Person', 'You Already Know' and 'Joan Of Arc' on what is being referred to as 'Vol. 1'. 'Vol 2' starts with 'Here Comes The Night Time II' and also includes 'Awful Sound (Oh Erydice)', 'It's Never Over (Oh Orpheous)', 'Porno', 'Afterlife', and 'Supersymmetry'.

The band's fourth album is set for release on October 28. Frontman Win Butler recently described the album as a "mash-up of Studio 54 and Haitian voodoo". Meanwhile, David Bowie light-heartedly threatened to steal Arcade Fire's 'Reflektor' for himself, according to band member Richard Reed Parry.

Bowie appears alongside the Canadian band on their new single. Speaking to NME, Parry lifted the lid on what it was like to be in the studio with Bowie. "It was just after 'The Next Day' had come out. He basically just came by the studio in New York while we were mixing, just to have a listen to the stuff we were doing," explains Parry. "He offered to lend us his services because he really liked the song. In fact, he basically threatened us – he was like, 'If you don't hurry up and mix this song, I might just steal it from you!' So we thought, well why don't we go one better, why don't you sing on our version? Thankfully he obliged, and we were really happy about that."
