The track will follow ‘The Lightning I’ and ‘The Lightning II’, both of which arrived in March and are the only tastes of the album to be shared so far.

The band first began teasing the release of ‘Unconditional I (Lookout Kid)’ on April 12, when frontman Win Butler posted a video on Instagram of a vinyl version of the album playing. “Next single is,” he is heard saying before a slow strumming song kicks off with the lyrics “Lookout kid trust your heart / you don’t have to play the part.”
Now, Arcade Fire have confirmed that the new single will arrive later this week. “Listen in to @zanelowe’s @applemusic show on Wednesday 5pm BST / 9am PDT / 12pm EDT to hear the first play,” they captioned a post on Instagram that featured a clip of the track.
