About time! Arcade Fire return with new track 'I Give You Power'

Mavis Staples knows a thing or two about rallying fans during tough times, and she's the flawless guest for Arcade Fire's new single, "I Give You Power". Today, frontman Win Butler discussed it with Zane Lowe of Apple Music.

Just hours after Gorillaz released the anti-Trump track "Hallelujah Money", Arcade Fire was next to reveal its track via Twitter.

The band previously teased "I Give You Power" in France, but otherwise has yet to specify whether it will anchor a new record.

"I give You Power" was released yesterday, on the eve of Donald Trump's inauguration as a TIDAL exclusive.

Senate Democrats have indicated they have sharp questions about, and may work to delay confirmation on, at least eight nominees. Both nominees are still undergoing ethics and Federal Bureau of Investigation reviews, aides said.

The searing track is the first taste of new material from Arcade Fire since their acclaimed 2013 album "Reflektor".

The song combines elements of industrial electronic with the dance-rock fans have heard in the past. I give you power, but I gotta be free.

Another tweet confirmed that all proceeds from "I Give You Power" will be donated to the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to protecting the civil liberties of everyone in America.

Arcade Fire is expected to deliver a new studio album and launch a tour sometime later this year.
