Arcade Fire perform stripped back 'Reflektor' tracks during Australian radio session – watch

Band play 'Normal Person' and 'Joan Of Ark' at Triple J appearance

Arcade Fire performed acoustic versions of two tracks from their latest album 'Reflektor' in a live session on Australian radio yesterday (January 29).

The band made an appearance on Triple J to perform 'Normal Person' and 'Joan Of Ark' from the 2013 album as well as older song 'My Body Is A Cage', from the band's album 'Neon Bible'. Elsewhere in the session, Win and Will Butler from the band discussed working with David Bowie and a recent incident at a festival when a fan received a broken nose while playing basketball with the band. Scroll down to listen to the full session now or watch 'Normal Person' above.

Arcade Fire are currently on tour in Australia and recently headlined the Big Day Out festival in Auckland, New Zealand playing a setlist made up of older material plus new songs, unlike the 'Reflektor'-heavy shows they played around the time of the album's release last year.

Arcade Fire are set to bring their tour to the UK in June, where they'll play two shows at London's Earls Court on June 6 and 7. They have also been announced as Friday night's headliner at Glastonbury, which takes place between June 25 and 29.
