Watch Arcade Fire’s Will Butler Play Six New Solo Songs In Brooklyn

Last night, Arcade Fire member Will Buter played a small solo show at the Brooklyn venue Baby’s All Right. (He did something similar in D.C. back in August, but there wasn’t any video then.) He played a set full of new songs, performing entirely solo (on guitar and keyboard) with a backing track. Decent-quality footage of a couple of those songs is online now. “Take My Side” is a slashing garage rocker that reminds me of Ty Segall, and “Finish” is a sharp piano ballad. Watch fan-made videos of both songs below. UPDATE: Video of four other songs have surfaced…

SETLIST:
“Cold”
“Son Of God”
“What I Want”
“Finish”
“Sun Comes Up”
“Surrender”
“Witness”
“Fields”
“Take My Side”
“I Don’t Know”

Butler is reportedly working on a solo album, and based on what we see here, it’ll probably be good!
