Arcade Fire‘s upcoming album WE will feature an guest spot from Peter Gabriel.

Frontman Win Butler revealed the nugget in an interview with the Montreal Gazette, which reports that the “Sledgehammer” artist is featured on a song called “Unconditional II (Race and Religion).”

“[Gabriel] came to the studio and we had a day to work on it,” Butler shares. “He does this thing where he double-tracks his voice, high and low. As soon as he put the high vocal down, I was like, ‘Oh s***, that’s Peter Gabriel.'”

Gabriel previously covered Arcade Fire’s Neon Bible track “My Body Is a Cage” on his 2010 album, Scratch My Back.

WE will be released May 6. It includes the previously released songs “The Lighting I” and “The Lightning II.”
