Arcade Fire has released a new 16-minute short film called Money + Love.
The clip, which features the songs "Put Your Money on Me" and "We Don't Deserve Love" from their 2017 Juno-nominated album, Everything Now, follows the Montreal band as they're forced to sell out to the fictional Everything Now Corporation after finding out that they are going bankrupt.
Actress Toni Collette plays the villainous exec who presents the band with contracts to sign, warning them that she'll take "just 98.3 per cent of future earnings."
What follows is a series of fake advertisements for Arcade Fire-branded merchandise including Creature Comfort cereal and Chemistry energy drinks. But, the band soon fights back by trying to steal the earnings back, except the heist doesn't go according to plan.
Watch the full video below.
Arcade Fire is nominated for five Juno Awards this year and will be performing at the live show at Vancouver's Rogers Arena on March 25. They will also recieve an international achievement award presented by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. For more coverage of the Juno Awards, head over to cbcmusic.ca/junos.
