Shortly after Arcade Fire’s Will Butler premiered a surreal trailer for his new album, ‘Policy,’ today (Nov. 24) -- which you can watch above -- Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1 debuted the album’s lead-off single, ‘Take My Side.’

Butler has been steadily promoting his forthcoming solo album, beginning with a few intimate shows where he unveiled the new material. Take a listen to the unwieldy rock tune in the audio player below, and then compare it to his performance of ‘Take My Side’ at a recent show in Brooklyn -- also found below.

‘Policy’ will land Mar. 10 on Merge Records.
