Broken Social Scene: free MP3 and new album details
Excellent news ahoy: Canadian collective Broken Social Scene will release the long-awaited follow up to 2005's superlative self-titled LP in May. Titled Forgiveness Rock Record, the album is produced by John McEntire of Tortoise and The Sea and Cake - a possibly significant development, seeing that previous producer David Newfeld was regarded as such an integral factor in the sprawling, textured soundscapes of the Scene's previous two albums. Forgiveness Rock Record will be released May 3rd on City Slang/Cooperative Music.
Meanwhile, the first taster of the album has been made available as a free download. The 7-minute long 'World Sick' is a bit tame, if we're honest, a bit safe, but you know...keep the faith. See what you think, visit here for the MP3:
