John Legend & The Roots – Wake Up (Arcade Fire Cover)


A couple of months ago we saw The Roots and John Legend performing an amazing live version of Arcade Fire‘s “Wake Up”. Now we’ve got a studio version, just as awesome. The song was made for John and The Roots’ politically inspired cover album Wake Up!, but for whatever reason it didn’t make the cut. I love the twist that happens when the song reaches the 3:47 mark. Thanks to PMA.
