Arcade Fire‘s Win Butler has shared a snippet of a new song along with a “message of unity” – listen to the clip below.
Taking to his Instagram in the early hours of this morning (July 18), the band’s frontman posted a series of clips to his story featuring a mixing board fed through an infrared filter as a new track plays.
Butler also shared a string of messages over the clips, writing: “These are the strangest times . . . and everyone is going through stress and pain for a huge variety of reasons. I just want to send a message of unity and hope that all the forces trying to keep us apart won’t be successful.”
He concluded: “Until the world is made whole. One body one soul. [Heart emoji] Win.”
It’s not clear as to whether the track is a new Arcade Fire record, but Butler does tag the band in the story, and a fan account tweeted that they couldn’t get a match for the song on Shazam so they “reckon this could be new Arcade Fire music.”
