If you’re listening to Arcade Fire’s “Reflektor” right now, thank Ireland’s Rollercoaster Records.

The Kilkenny record store jumped the gun on the Oct. 29 release date by putting the album on sale early. As things do today, it instantly spread to all corners of the Internet, and quickly changed the plans of what had been a long, meticulously cryptic roll-out.

The band, in response, put up a high-quality stream of the entire album set to footage from the classic Brazilian film “Black Orpheus.” It’s streaming below.

The 13-track album, as has been widely noted, boasts production work from the band, LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy and longtime collaborator Markus Dravs.

The band is still on for an L.A. show at an unnamed venue on Oct. 29. We’ll have some first reactions and a formal review up soon, but in the meantime, thank an impossibly cheery indie Irish music store for making your day a lot dancier.
