“Say wait until tomorrow / Cos today is always strange...”

Arcade Fire shared new song 'Generation A' on a special TV broadcast last night (November 3rd).

The band previously stated their intention to record a new album in Texas during the US elections, a return to the studio for the Montreal-based outfit.

Escaping from their creative cocoon, Arcade Fire performed on Election Night with Stephen Colbert.

Unveiling new song 'Generation A', it's a stirring, swirling slice of anthemic indie rock, with Win Butler singing:

“Say wait until you’re older and you will understand / They say the generation’s coming / I don’t think they understand that I am not a patient man...”

Perhaps presciently given the current electoral confusion, he sang: “Say wait until tomorrow / Cos today is always strange...”

Catch 'Generation A' below.
