In case you were already in bed, or still out partying last night, and missed the season premier of Saturday Night Live with Tina Fey and the post-SNL Arcade Fire concert special, or if you just want to watch it again and build up some more completely understandable hate for Michael Cera, you can watch them online via The Creator’s Project on YouTube.

The full episode of SNL is available on Hulu.

The half-hour masquerade-themed special, directed by Roman Coppola was taped over a handful of secret shows in Montreal at a small heavily mirrored club called La Salsathèque earlier this month, where they played a selection of new songs from the forthcoming Reflektor.

The five songs that made the broadcast, with liberal, annoying appearances from Cera, Bill Hader, James Franco, Jason SchwartzmanBen Stiller and Bono (etc), were:

Reflektor (SNL)
Afterlife (SNL)
Here Comes the Night Time (Special)
We Exist (Special)
Normal Person (Special)

Reflektor is out October 29th from Merge Records. (h/t to Us Kids Know)

    Little darlin’ the smiles
    Returning to their faces
    Little darlin’ it seems like
    Years since we been here
    HERE COMES THE NIGHT TIME
    HERE COMES THE NIGHT TIME
    IT’S ALRIGHT [jang jang jang jang-a jang jang tootle-de-doo doo]

    Little darlin’ the ice is
    Slo-o-o-wly melting
    Little darlin’ it seems like
    Years since you turned queer
    HERE COMES THE NIGHT TIME
    HERE COMES THE NIGHT TIME
    IT’S ALRIGHT [jang jang jang jang-a jang jang tootle-de-doo doo]
