Will Butler + Sister Squares Release "Stop Talking"

Arcade Fire’s Will Butler + Sister Squares (Miles Francis, Julie Shore, Will’s wife Jenny Shore, and Sara Dobbs) have released their new single “Stop Talking“.

The song is taken from their upcoming self-titled album Will Butler + Sister Squares, set to arrive on September 22 via Merge. Pre-order your copy here.

Speaking about it, Butler said:

This is one of the ‘dream songs’ on the record. Emotion in dreams; dreams in reality; tired and confused. ‘Stop talking; there’s nothing to say;’ not sure if it functions as a dismissal ‘Stop!,’ or as a sign of love ‘You don’t have to say it; I already know;’ I think, like a lot of communication between people who love each other—a little of both? Like, this song is full of fear; someone expressing fear to their partner, and the partner being like, ‘There’s nothing to fear, and also, shut up, quit being crazy.’ That’s not exactly it, but there’s something of that here.
