Hipster icons Arcade Fire stopped by BBC Radio 1’s “Live Lounge” today to play some tunes and chat about their upcoming album, Everything Now, out July 28. While in studio, they found time to do the most important thing a band can do in these trying times, which is to deliver a rousing rendition of America’s national anthem: Lorde’s “Green Light.”

The band was backed by a youth choir as they delivered the electric song to radio listeners everywhere. They also sang the title track off their forthcoming record, “Everything Now,” which has seen the release of singles “Creature Comfort” and “Signs of Life.”

While in the “Live Lounge,” singer Win Butler also found time to thank “Our Lorde” for “fighting the good fight.” So, clearly, at least someone gets what’s important in life.

If you tune in to the radio broadcast here, you can listen to the “Green Light” cover at 2:25:05, or to “Everything Now” at 2:04:10. Or, if you’d rather just watch some clips, take a look below and rejuvenate your spirits as we power through to the weekend:
