Arcade Fire is typically known for mellow stylings and metaphor-heavy lyrics, but the Grammy-winning group switched gears during a gig in Auburn Hills, Mich., covering the Stevie Wonder classic "Uptight (Everything's Alright)." The cover began with the opening notes of Wonder's "Superstition" before launching into a fun rendition of "Uptight."

The performance was one of several covers Arcade Fire has added to the Reflektor Tour setlist. During the opening leg of the American tour in Louisville, Ky., last week, the sextet performed The Rolling Stones' "The Last Time," while Prince's "Controversy" got an update at a Minneapolis stop days later.

Watch Arcade Fire cover "Uptight (Everything's Alright)," then listen to the band's Prince redo below.
