Continuing his quest of writing and recording a song each day this week based on the news stories of The Guardian newspaper, Arcade Fire‘s Will Butler has premiered a brand new track titled “Madonna Can’t Save Me Now.”

Drawing from a story about the discovery of a black hole 12 billion times larger than our solar system’s sun, Butler says “I had every intention of writing about the Brit awards. It was a news event I was sure the Guardian would cover. I was pretty confident in Sam Smith and Taylor Swift. I could cheat a bit, prepare a couple zingers in advance. But they just found a black hole 12bn times the mass of the sun and almost as old as the universe itself, so, whatever. I’m not terrified were going to get sucked into a black hole. I’m terrified that all of human art is only 50,000 years old and that nothing anything any of us do will ever matter. jk lol Bwahahahhahahahhaha. Madonna can’t save us now.”
