The cover follows recent performances of Harold Faltermeyer's 'Axel F' – the theme from the movie Beverly Hills Cop – at the second of two shows at the Forum in Los Angeles – as well as a rendition of Creedence Clearwater Revival's 'Hey Tonight' at the Shoreline Ampitheatre in Mountain View.

Covers of songs by artists local to the city the band are playing in have been a fixture of Arcade Fire's tour in support of 2013 album 'Reflektor'. They've covered tracks by The Smiths, Echo And The Bunnymen and INXS among others.
