By Annie Reuter

No strangers to throwing covers in their set, Arcade Fire put their own spin on R.E.M.‘s “Radio Free Europe” at their Friday night (May 2) gig in Georgia. This continues the band’s location-specific covers as R.E.M.’s home state is Georgia.

Last month, Arcade Fire announced “We Exist” as their next single, which according to frontman Win Butler is about “a gay kid talking to his dad” about equality.

The band released a teaser for the clip, which was shot at Coachella and features Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield, during this past Saturday’s episode of Saturday Night Live, hosted by Garfield.

In the 20-second clip, the actor is shown wandering through the festival crowd in a blonde wig and heavy pink eye makeup, not unlike what Butler has been wearing onstage.
