We recently told you how excited we were for the possibility of a new album from the mercurial band. Well, it might be on the way sooner than we thought as they release new track, featuring the soulful sounds of Mavis Staples, the imposing ‘I Give You Power’.
It fits the bill of the band’s latest efforts, implementing a menacing disco beat with a slightly dark and metallic edge. Making the dancefloor feel a little cold whilst still producing the flecks of gold we require from Arcade Fire.
Soul legend Mavis Staples adds some class to the affair with an incredible vocal which adds an extra layer to this already enticing tune. It speaks volumes of a band who have transcended genre throughout their career that they are still seamlessly able to do so.
All proceeds from the single will go to ACLU, listen below and help the cause.
