Featuring Andrew Garfield...
Arcade Fire has released the music video for "We Exist", which stars Andrew Garfield as a blonde transgender woman. It starts with Garfield shaving his head then putting on a bra. Garfield eventually arrives at a bar and begins to slow dance with a man before getting shoved around by the other people at the location. Garfield's character eventually goes to Coachella where Arcade Fire is performing.
Butler said the song was about a son trying to tell his father that he's gay. At Coachella last month, he told the crowd to support same-sex marriage in a more "demonstrative way".
The song appears on the band's fourth album Reflektor, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 in October. The band's tour will continue at the Primavera Sound Festival on May 29.
