Arcade Fire feat. Mavis Staples – I Give You Power

I have not posted in a long while due to months of travel (some expected, some not). I definitely have found new music that I have yet to share with you, along with my bests of 2016. BUT, with the daunting inauguration approaching tomorrow, I had to share this bold song strategically released today by Arcade Fire and the beloved Mavis Staples. I’ll let the lyrics speak for itself:

I give you power, over me
I give you power, but now I gotta be free
I give you power, but now I say
I give you power, I can take it away
I can take it away
Woo!

I give you power
I give you power
Over me
Over me
I give you power
I give you power
But now I gotta be free
But I gotta be free
I give you power
I give you power
But now I say
But now I say
I give you power
I give you power
I can take it away
I can take it away
I can take it away

Watch me
Take it away
Watch me
I can take it away
Watch me
Take it away
Watch the night

I give you power
I give you power
Over me
Over me
I give you power
I give you power
But now I gotta be free
But I gotta be free
I give you power
I give you power
But now I say
But now I say
I give you power
I give you power
I can take it away
I can take it away
I can take it away

I give you power, over me
I give you power, but I gotta be free (gotta be free)
I give you power, now I say
I can’t watch you take it away
Woo!

I give you power
I give you power
Over me
Over me
I give you power
I give you power
But now I gotta be free
I gotta be free
I give you power
I give you power
But now I say
But now I say
I give you power
I give you power
I can take it away
I can take it away
I can take it away

Well, oooooh, oooh
Oooooh, oooh

I give you power (power)
Where do you think it all comes from? Huh?
Who gives you power? (Power)
Where do you think it all comes from?
I give you power

I can take it all away
I can take it away
Watch me
Take it away
Watch me
Take it away
Watch me now
Take it away
Watch me

Now who’ll be chanting this during Saturday’s Women’s March?
