We haven’t heard much from Arcade Fire since they released their rad album Reflektor back in 2013. They released their film The Reflector Tapes in 2015 & band member Will Butler has been busy with his solo stuff. Today though, Arcade Fire shared “I Give You Power” featuring the legendary Mavis Staples, a new song which top Arcade Fire fan site Arcade Fire Tube noted Win Butler & Régine Chassagne performed in Paris back in May 2016.
We’re unsure if this track will be on their upcoming new album or not, but we do know all proceeds go to the American Civil Liberties Union, which is quite awesome. As the band posted on various social media…
It’s never been more important that we stick together and take care of each other.

Will Butler also tweeted about Mavis Staples earlier this week, saying…
Dear Lord, on this day–as on all days–we thank you for @mavisstaples
