Arcade Fire and David Byrne perform Talking Heads songs at Montreal charity concert — watch

on May 26, 2016, 6:10pm

Back in February, Montreal’s Society for Arts and Technology hosted a benefit concert for KANPE, the pro-Haiti charity co-founded by Arcade Fire’s Régine Chassagne. At the fourth edition of KANAVAL KANPE, Chassangne, her husband Win Butler, and guitarist Richard Reed Parry served as the house band and performed Talking Heads covers alongside David Byrne.

All we had for you back then were some grainy fan-shot videos, but the show has now been compiled into a series of short documentary videos for TIDAL. The clips feature Arcade Fire and Byrne performing “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)” and “Road To Nowhere”, along with some footage of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band (who previously participated in Arcade Fire’s David Bowie parade in New Orleans).

Check out Arcade Fire and Byrne collaborating here (you’ll need a TIDAL subscription), and click here to see more highlights from the event.
