Will Butler Prepping Live LP
A release date has not been established for the as-yet-untitled live set, but Butler explained over social media that he is in the mixing stages. A tracklist has yet to be decided upon. Apparently he's looking to the faithful for a few pointers, and fan site Arcade Fire Tube has already chimed in with a suggestion.
I'm mixing a live album. What does one want from a live album? New stuff? Record stuff? Does "vibe" make up for it sounding sorta crazy?— Will Butler (@butlerwills) November 4, 2015
@ArcadeFiretube I originally planned to put out the "standard set" show (and may still), but it feels long. Live records can be tiring— Will Butler (@butlerwills) November 4, 2015
Though an ETA was not given, chances are that the release will land through his current label home, Merge Records. At the very least, imprint founder Mac McCaughan has retweeted the info.
As previously reported, Butler stepped away from his full-time gig with Arcade Fire this year to deliver Policy, and album that was first released in March before arriving as an expanded, deluxe digital edition in May.
Last week, he plugged the set with a spooky new video for its "What I Want," which you'll find below.
