 Bowie has been a fan of the band for many years, and frontman Win Butler previously said of their famous supporter, "I remember when we first met David Bowie and he said, 'You'll definitely be big in the U.K.' He was always enthusiastic about the band."

In what parallel universe is Bowie's "The Next Day" considered a hit?  It barely charted in the U.S., or anywhere else for that matter.  Like many of Bowie's early recorded efforts, it's groundbreaking but not terribly commercial or radio-friendly.  Still, any collaboration with Arcade Fire is bound to benefit both that Canadian band and Bowie.  It's good to have him back, and I hope he tours again soon!!!
