Arcade Fire’s Will Butler Unveils Video for New Song ‘Close My Eyes’

Arcade Fire‘s Will Butler has unveiled a new song called ‘Close My Eyes’, the latest single from his upcoming solo LP, Generations. It arrives with a self-directed music video featuring Butler rowing around in a boat built by his grandfather. Check it out below.

“I tried to make the lyrics a straightforward and honest description of an emotion I feel often—a drive for change coupled with despair,” Butler said in a statement about the track. “‘I’m tired of waiting for a better day. But I’m scared and I’m lazy and nothing’s gonna change.’ Kind of a sad song. Trying to tap into some Smokey Robinson/Motown feeling—‘I’ve got to dance to keep from crying.’”

Generations comes out September 25 via Merge. It follows Butler’s debut solo album, 2015’s Policy. Last month, Butler shared the lead single from the record, ‘Surrender’.
