Fresh off the Saturday Night Live stage, Arcade Fire have released a new video for the song “Unconditional I (Lookout Kid).”

 

The track is drawn from the band’s brand new Columbia album, WE, which came out Friday. Arcade Fire tapped Academy Award-nominee Benh Zeitlin to direct and Affonso Gonçalves to edit the clip, which showcases children rolling down grass hills and inflatable air dancers getting caught in comical positions (such as humping the roof of a building).

Snippets from live performances of the song at Arcade Fire’s recent gigs in New Orleans and at Coachella are also featured, including the parade of inflatable air dancers that joined them on stage.

Arcade Fire made their fifth SNL musical guest appearance on Saturday, and while in the Big Apple last week, the band pre-recorded an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, which will air May 12.

In further support of the widely acclaimed WE, Arcade Fire will begin a world tour on August 30 in Dublin. They’ll be back in North America later this fall and will hit arenas. Beck will support with a nightly acoustic set on the North American dates, while Feist will open in Europe.
