Listen to Arcade Fire Cover Lou Reed's "Perfect Day," "Satellite of Love"

To honor the Velvet Underground frontman’s legacy as a musician, Arcade Fire covered portions of two of Lou Reed’s finest tracks “Perfect Day” and “Satellite of Love” during a live studio session for NPR. The Canadian band performed at Hollywood’s Capitol Studios in order to promote the release of their highly anticipated fourth record, Reflektor, which came out today.

Check out a video of the Capitol Studios performance below. The band performs “Perfect Day” around the 17-minute mark and “Satellite of Love” around the 22-minute mark.
