Arcade Fire has released a new song called “Unconditional I (Lookout Kid),” a track off the band’s upcoming album, WE.
“There’s nothing saccharine about unconditional love in a world that is coming apart at the seams,” says frontman Win Butler. “WE need each other, in all of our imperfection.”
“‘Lookout Kid’ is a reminder, a lullaby for the end times, sung to my son, but for everyone,” he continues. “Trust your heart, trust your mind, trust your body, trust your soul. S*** is going to get worse before it gets better, but it always gets better, and no one’s perfect. Let me say it again. No one’s perfect.”
You can listen “Unconditional I (Lookout Kid)” now via digital outlets.
WE, the follow-up to 2017’s Everything Now, arrives May 6. It also includes the previously released songs “The Lightning I” and “The Lightning II.”
Arcade Fire will celebrate the release of WE with a performance on Saturday Night Live on May 7.
