The indie/baroque collective from Toronto, Canada Broken Social Scene, after a seven year break to work side or solo projects, have gathered since last summer to record a new album. As it was mentioned in a recent radio interview, “to raise feelings for one more time and therefore to create new songs with them“.
The first shared song is ‘Halfway Home‘, an up-tuned, chorus song and its remarkable orchestration, while the lyrics make it sound like an indirect celebration of their reunion. This is yet the only information they officially shared about the upcoming album, except of the fact that is already finished according to Kevin Drew. In addition, Feist has informed her followers since last August via Twitter that she has recorded with the Broken brothers.
