“All songs have a beak, an anus & a hat” – Win Butler explains his creative process

win-butler-how-i-write-a-song

Curious how Win Butler comes up with all those great Arcade Fire songs? He explains it all in a video shot for The Onion’s slightly more legit news parody site, Clickhole. “First thing I do is I take all my clothes off and throw up all over the place,” Win says. “That way I’m kind of in the groove, I don’t have to worry about my clothes catching on fire, and I don’t need to take any breaks to throw up.” It goes from there. Could it all be true, or was someone just feeding him silly jokes just off camera? Either way, it’s pretty funny. Watch below.

Arcade Fire play NYC’s Madison Square Garden in September (tickets) as part of their tour in support of Everything Now.
