Will Butler - Generation
Vinyl is limited edition milky clear + opaque red splatter. Includes download.
In the five years since Will Butler released his debut album, "Policy", he’s toured the world both solo and as a member of Arcade Fire, released the "Friday Night" live album, recorded and released Arcade Fire’s international #1 album "Everything Now", earned his master’s degree in public policy from Harvard, hosted a series of touring town halls on local issues (police contracts, prison reform, municipal paid sick leave, voting rights), and spent time raising his three children.
He also found the time and inspiration to write and record a new album, "Generations".
“Generations is more of a novel—despairing, funny, a little bit epic… A big chunk of this record is asking: What’s my place in American history? What’s my place in America’s present? Both in general—as a participant, as we all are, in the shit that’s going down—but, also extremely particularly: me as Will Butler, rich person, white person, Mormon, Yankee, parent, musician of some sort, I guess. What do I do? What can I do? The record asks that question over and over, even if it’s not much for answers.”
