Arcade Fire multi-instrumentalist Will Butler has announced a new solo album called Generations.

The record will arrive on September 25, but you can download the lead single, “Surrender,” now via digital outlets.

“‘Surrender’ is masquerading as a love song, but it’s more about friendship,” Butler explains. “About the confusion that comes as people change — didn’t you use to have a different ideal? Didn’t we have the same ideal at some point? Which of us changed? How did the world change? Relationships that we sometimes wish we could let go of, but that are stuck within us forever.”

Generations is Butler’s sophomore solo outing, following his 2015 debut, Policy.

Butler is the younger brother of Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler. As for that outfit, Arcade Fire’s most recent album is 2017’s Everything Now.
