Last month, Arcade Fire released their fifth studio album Everything Now, so in our book, that makes frontman Win Butler a pretty seasoned musician. In a new “interview” with ClickHole, he unleashes many secrets to how he’s become so successful—he reveals what he thinks are the components of a really great song, describes his very methodical songwriting process, finds inspiration in protein powder, and consults with Paul McCartney for help whenever he’s really stuck.
