John Legend and the Roots Cover Arcade Fire

According to Pitchfork, you can now buy the John Legend and the Roots cover of Arcade Fire's “Wake Up” on Amazon. It's selling for $1.99 today only, or you can listen to the stream below.

The cover is an outtake from Wake Up!, a set of classic soul covers that the two acts collaborated on. The album got its title from the Arcade Fire song but the studio version didn't make the album. Personally, I think the video of Legend and the Roots performing “Wake Up” live at their American Express/Vevo “Unstaged” concert is more hair raising. Watch it after the jump.
