Butler is promoting a solo album through Polydor entitled 'Policy'.

Will and Win Butler are basically a pair of constant heart eyes emoji inducing siblings who can do no wrong and only get better with each passing day.

That's why, when we heard that Will would be writing a song a day for the Guardian based on the broadsheet's daily news stories, our eyes popped out of our heads in genuine excitement.

Butler, likely best known for being in Arcade Fire with big brother Win, is promoting a solo album through Polydor entitled Policy. Policy is due out March and clearly Will will be promoting the heck out of it.. 

In the run up to the album's release, he will be treating Guardian headlines as his muse, coming up with a new song every day based on the UK paper's stories.

The move is oddly Eurocentric for Will who hails from Texas but plays in Montreal based Arcade Fire. 

Fans can likely expect great things from Will who was nominated for an Academy Award last year for his contributions to the original score for Her

Hear his most recent single from Policy - Anna
