Arcade Fire says that David Bowie, who is featured on the band's new single, "Reflektor," tried to swipe the song from them. Speaking to NME, AF's Richard Reed said the collab began harmlessly enough.
"He basically came by the studio in New York while we were mixing," Reed said. "He offered to lend us his services because he really liked the song."
But not long after, things took a turn for the worse in the studio.
"In fact, he basically threatened us - he was like, 'If you don't hurry up and mix this song, I might just steal it from you!' So we thought, well why don't you sing on our version? Thankfully he obliged, and we were really happy about that," Reed said.
The cut was produced by former LCD Soundsystem fronter James Murphy.
