Venerated Canadian six-piece Arcade Fire have released a brand new single, featuring gospel singer, actress and civil rights activist Mavis Staples.
Much like Gorillaz’ Hallelujah Money, the song was released to coincide with Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration; it’s entitled I Give You Power and appeared on Arcade Fire’s Facebook page on Friday with a brief message: “It’s never been more important that we stick together and take care of each other. Love, Mavis Staples and Arcade Fire.”
It’s the first hint of what the band’s upcoming fifth album – due for release in 2017 – might sound like. All proceeds from the sale of the single will go to benefit the American Civil Liberties Union.
