Arcade Fire have returned with a new single featuring Mavis Staples. The song is called “I Give You Power” and will benefit the ACLU. It features the refrain: “I gave you power/ I can take it away.” The timing of the song’s release is no coincidence

You can listen to “I Give You Power” below.

Arcade Fire are set to headline a number of festivals this year and will release a new album this year. The band has reportedly finished recording the album and might be out as soon as this spring. It is unclear at this time if “I Give You Power” will appear on it. 

The band also shared this photo on their social media accounts.
