Will Butler Shares “Clean Monday”

Will Butler Policy

Will Butler has shared another track from his forthcoming album Policy set for release on March 10th via Merge called “Clean Monday.” It’s got a few Talking Heads qualities to it and was inspired by the Greek debt crisis, according to The Guardian who is streaming it now.

Butler had the following to say about the song coming together:

I was reading The Guardian’s live coverage of the forthcoming Greek proposals of how they’re going to pay off their debts, when a little blurb popped up explaining that the Greek markets were closed today because it was “Clean Monday” – the Greek Orthodox equivalent of Ash Wednesday. It was an amazing/hilarious (well, maybe mildly amusing) coincidence to me that the Greek ministers were scrambling and figuring out how to avoid strict austerity on the day that Lent starts.
