The musician released his debut album 'Policy' in March
Arcade Fire member Will Butler has appeared on US television, performing tracks from his new solo album on Late Night with Seth Meyers.
Butler’s solo debut ‘Policy’ was released in March via Merge Records.
Speaking to NME recently, Butler said of his solo LP, “there’s a little more dumb humour than you find in Arcade Fire”. He added: “To me, it’s a bit like the world of Moby Dick – you think of it as a serious work of American literature, but it starts off with this slapstick sequence and jokes and whale penises.”
The musician performed his tracks ‘Witness’ and ‘Anna’ on the late-night show. Watch footage of ‘Witness’ beneath.
Arcade Fire husband-and-wife duo Win Butler and Régine Chassagne are opening a Haitian restaurant in Montreal called ‘Agrikol’. Chassagne herself has family hailing from the Caribbean island of Haiti, with the band’s 2013 album ‘Reflektor’ partly influenced by the music of the country.
Butler told Canada’s The Globe And Mail: “[The restaurant is] more of an art project. The idea is that it’s a cultural space. The thing that we were really impressed with at Rhum Corner is that it’s this space for Haitian and Caribbean culture and it’s really cool and contemporary.” Butler added that Agrikol will replicate the “cultural warmth” of Haiti.
