It’s been seven years, but those lovely Canadian musicians, Broken Social Scene have returned with a new song from their upcoming 5th album. Kevin Drew told
Kevin Drew, Broken Social Scene’s fearless leader, told Stereogum:
“It’s been 17 years together as a band, and you just pick up where you left off. It’s always been that way. We’ve been working on this album on and off for the last year, and we thought that, since we’re an anthemic band, we wanted to bring the celebration with this first song.”
“We wanted this to be unity, and we wanted this record to be all of us. And that’s what it is. At this time and in the state of the world as it is, the one thing we knew we could do is come back as friends. […] It was important for all of us to come together because it’s the only thing we can politically do at this moment in time…”
The album will also feature some familiar voices such as Emily Haines from Metric, Feist and The Stars Amy Millan.
There is no word on a specific release date for the album.
