Arcade Fire’s Win Butler and Régine Chassagne have teamed up with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to release an energetic new song called “Ann Ale! (Let’s Go!).”

The collaboration, which can be heard here, is part of the inaugural Krewe Du Kanaval event, which takes place today (Feb. 6) in New Orleans.

Krewe Du Kanaval celebrates the Haitian Carnival before Lent and will include a parade from the French Quarter to Congo Square in New Orleans. As part of the festivities, Butler and Chassagne will perform alongside the Preservation horn section.

Krewe Du Kanaval is a new addition to Mardi Gras and will help raise funds for Preservation Hall Foundation and KANPE, two organizations that provide social and cultural assistance in New Orleans and Haiti. For more information visit kanaval.org.
