Soulwax remix Arcade Fire's 'Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)' – listen

Soulwax have remixed Arcade Fire's 'Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)'.

The Belgian dance-rock pioneers have reworked the track, taken from Arcade Fire's third album, 'The Suburbs'. You can listen to the track, which premiered on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show last night (March 19), by scrolling down the page and clicking on the video.

Earlier this month, the Canadian band announced that they were releasing remixes by Damian Taylor of 'Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)' and 'Ready To Start' for this year's Record Store Day. The band will release remixes of both tracks on 12-inch vinyl on April 21, with copies limited to 1,000.

Arcade Fire recently released their track from the soundtrack to the new fantasy film The Hunger Games.

The track plays over the dystopian thriller's closing credits and was recorded by the Canadian band last month. The film itself features a track titled 'Horn Of Plenty', which has been written and recorded by Win Butler and Regine Chassagne.

Arcade Fire are currently working on the follow-up to 2010's 'The Suburbs'.
