Arcade Fire’s Will Butler is planning to write a song based on headlines he finds in The Guardian every day for a week, the newspaper reported Friday.

The song-writing sprint is inspired by Bob Dylan’s penchant for scouring newspapers for song ideas, such as the paper that led to “The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll,” Butler tells The Guardian. The writing begins on Feb. 23, and each song will debut on The Guardian’s website.
