‘Unconditional I (Lookout Kid)’ has now been shared by the band on their social media, with a caption on Instagram reading:
“There’s nothing saccharine about unconditional love in a world that is coming apart at the seams. WE need each other, in all of our imperfection.
“Lookout Kid is a reminder, a lullaby for the end times, sung to my son, but for everyone… Trust your heart, trust your mind, trust your body, trust your soul. Shit is going to get worse before it gets better, but it always gets better, and no one’s perfect.”
The band previewed the new single earlier this month during a surprise performance at the first weekend of Coachella 2022. Butler had to restart the song at the festival after being overcome with emotion.
Frontman Win Butler dedicated the track to his son. After beginning the first verse with the lyrics, “Look out kid, trust your heart,” Butler stopped, took a moment to wipe his eyes and stood back from the microphone. He then told the crowd, “It’s been a hard fucking year,” before starting from the beginning again. See the video below.
