Just like new releases from Moby and Gorillaz, Arcade Fire’s return has been timed to coincide with Donald Trump’s inauguration. “I Give You Power”–a collaboration with Mavis Stapes–can be interpreted as a warning to any politician who doesn’t think they’re subject to the will of the people. A tweet from the band reads:
It’s never been more important that we stick together & take care of each other.
Love, Mavis Staples and Arcade Firehttps://t.co/4pz2rgNjYi

Is this from a new album? Unknown. But it’s good to see AF back.
