Arcade Fire, Tim Darcy, A Tribe Called Red: Radio 3's top 30 songs for the week of February 13, 2017

Editorial Staff

Arcade Fire surprised everyone a few weeks ago when dropped their first new song in four years on Twitter. "I Give You Power" is a collaboration with gospel/soul music legend and civil rights icon Mavis Staples and it debuts at #19 on our chart this week.


You might already be familiar with singer-songwriter Jeen O'Brien's work — she has appeared as a guest artist on tracks for Great Big Sea and Serena Ryder, and was also a member of the Brendan Canning-fronted project Cookie Duster. After releasing her first solo album Tourist in 2014, she is back with a follow up called Modern Life. The title track from the album checks in at #14.
