Band are forced to sign a corporate contract in new clip
Arcade Fire have shared their new ‘Money + Love’ double video. Scroll below to watch.
The joint video combines the tracks ‘Put Your Money On Me’ and ‘We Don’t Deserve Love’, both lifted from their 2017 album ‘Everything Now’.
Directed by David Wilson and written by Wilson and Arcade Fire themselves, it also stars the band alongside the Oscar-nominated Toni Collette.
The clip continues the themes surrounding their controversial ‘Everything Now’ album campaign and sees the band forced to sign a corporate contract to keep themselves afloat before trying to escape with the money.
Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler previously said: “The concept of a double video really appealed to us, we’d always loved songs being put together as A and B sides… and these songs seemed perfect together. David has been a great collaborator for us since ‘Reflektor’ and we were finally able to work with Toni whom we’d been wanting to work with for some time”.

Arcade Fire are set to release their first EP on vinyl for Record Store Day in April.
They will also perform as the musical guests on Saturday Night Live on March 17.
Last year, the band’s frontman Win Butler has discussed their controversial fake news marketing campaign surrounding ‘Everything Now’.
“Maybe there was a certain amount of naïveté on our behalf about how things would be received,” Butler said. “I guess at the very core of it, we were hoping that, at least among our fans, we could contribute to a conversation about thinking about what you read, not taking things at face value, critical thinking. Maybe certain parts of that got away from us.”
“Honestly, we’re talking about two weeks in the lifespan of this album… And if ultimately the biggest regret of my career is that some people think maybe we made a misstep with an album rollout, I can certainly live with that.”
