Will Butler - "Friday Night" (Merge): This is the title track from the recently-released live album from the Arcade Fire guitarist (he’s brother of mainman Win). Butler’s earlier full-length debut Policy was an eclectic gem, chock full of catchy songs, and it deserved more commercial recognition.
“Friday Night” is another fun romp, one demonstrating Butler’s quirky sense of humour and attitude. It gets a boost via this new video directed by comedian Jo Firestone and starring Will and his family as they take a playful look ahead into the future. At one point in the song, Butler urges "keep your ears off my f --in rock 'n roll." Sorry, Will. I'll keep them here!
Friday Night will be released on vinyl September 9.
