I heard it's not actually a concert, and they're going to square off in mortal combat. Who will tear who's spine out? Only time will tell.

Good luck! I'm jealous.

And I disagree.

Actually, they're going to square off in a game of basketball, but since Arcade Fire outnumber The National (Richard Reed Parry will play for both teams) Matt will recruit Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose to play for them.

At one point in the fourth quarter, in a fit of frustration, Win will flagrantly foul Rose who was attempting a layup, and then stomp off with the basketball, leading Matt to write a song titled, "Win Butler of The Suburbs stole my basketball."

Bryan Devendorf would destroy everyone. He's 6'7" and looks like Jesus, how could you pick against him?

Yeah, when did this happen? Nonetheless, I'm damn excited.

* Awesome title, by the way.

I'm not sure why, but it's hilarious to me it's in Portal 2.

No idea when this all went down. I hadn't heard anything until this morning, when I checked what.cd...I mean, found a copy in my local record store.

It's a gorgeous piano ballad, so yeah, not sure what it's doing in Portal 2, but whatever, new music is new music.

Wow, that came out of nowhere.

Judging by its cover art, one would assume it's another song from the High Violet sessions.

Closing credits, probably.

Is it available digitally?

Apparently it's available on iTunes, although I'm not at home to confirm that.

Just listened to it on youtube. Gorgeous.

Ah, right, that makes sense. And, yes, it's on iTunes.
