The band described the song as “meditative vibes to help you focus and feel inspired” in a post on Instagram, which includes a short snippet of the track. Arcade Fire’s original piece is part of Headspace’s new Focus playlist that was curated by John Legend, per a tweet from the company.
In November, the band debuted a new song called “Generation A” during The Late Show With Stephen Colbert‘s live election night special and in 2019, they released a cover of “Baby Mine” for Disney’s live-action remake of Dumbo. Their most recent album is 2017’s Everything Now.
In October, Win Butler discussed working on the follow-up to Everything Now on Rick Rubin’s Broken Record podcast.
“We had been writing for a year and were doing our first session towards the record when kinda Covid came down,” he said, adding that being in album-writing mode during this time was like a roller coaster that added momentum. “I’ve just been writing, like I can’t remember a time where I’ve written more” and hinted that they wrote “two or three” albums in the process.
