It’s Monday so music is especially important for dealing with whatever feelings you are feeling. Maybe you have an emotional hangover or a literal hangover from the weekend. Maybe you are struggling to deal with the fact you have a normal job and you aren’t that special and life is hard. Maybe you hate your pants. Maybe you hate yourself.

Whatever feelings you are feeling, the Arcade Fire’s new song “Afterlife” will make you feel like someone else is feeling them too. Dance! Sing! Scream! Shout! It’s going to be okay! We can work it out! Their new album Reflektor comes out on October 29!

*UPDATE- the song has been taken down from SoundCloud but below is a video that hopefully won’t be taken down because it’s official!*
