You can listen to the song now via Tidal.

“It’s never been more important that we stick together & take care of each other,” say Staples and Arcade Fire of the track in a joint message posted on the group’s Twitter feed. All proceeds from the song will be donated to the American Civil Liberties Union.

Staples, who was among the artists recognized at the 2016 Kennedy Center Honors in December, has a number of U.S. concerts lined up this year, the next being a show on Friday night in Costa Mesa, California. Check out Mavis’ full 2017 tour schedule at
