Arcade Fire is back with a haunting anthem that we can’t get out of our heads. The track is titled “I Give You Power” and features Chicago-born gospel singer, Mavis Staples. The band coincidentally dropped the song on Donald Trump’s inauguration day (Jan. 19th) noting that all proceeds of the song would be going to the American Civil Liberties Union.
Following the inauguration as well as the Women’s March, the band tweeted this on January 23rd:
With the women of the world.https://t.co/Fn9yb90OXv

The repetitive lyrics of the song are as follows:
I give you power, over me
I give you power, but now I gotta be free
I give you power, but now I say
I give you power, I can take it away
