Will Butler 'out of Arcade Fire' has announced his second solo album

Will Butler 'out of Arcade Fire' has announced his second solo album.

The follow-up to debut 'Policy', 'Generations' is out from 25th September via Merge. The news arrives alongside a self-directed video for teaser track 'Surrender'.

"'Surrender' is masquerading as a love song," he explains, "but it’s more about friendship. 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.

"It’s also about trying to break from the first-person view of the world. “What can I do? What difference can I make?” It’s not about some singular effort—you have to give yourself over to another power. Give over to people who have gone before who’ve already built something—you don’t have to build something new! The world doesn’t always need a new idea, it doesn’t always need a new personality. What can you do with whatever power and money you’ve got? Surrender it over to something that’s already made. And then the song ends with an apology—I’m sorry I’ve been talking all night. Cause talking like that, man, not always useful."

Give it a listen below.
