Alongside Mavis Staples, Arcade Fire have released their track titled “I Give You Power”, giving us an introductory glance as to what the Arcade Fire of 2017 looks (sounds) like. Just before the inauguration of President Trump, the band shared the song with this message alongside it:
“It’s never been more important that we stick together and take care of each other”.
The track certainly distinguishes itself from past projects of Arcade Fire, which have been met with extremely open arms from fans across the globe. We’ll see if the band bursting full of ridiculously talented individuals (like Win Butler, aka DJ Windows 98) can meet our expectation after their 2013 masterpiece Reflektor blew us all away, and then some. News came out earlier this year that the band just finished recording their record, meaning “I Give You Power” might be the start of something bigger. Take a listen to the new stuff for yourself.
All proceeds of “I Give You Power” go to ACLU, American Civil Liberties Union.
