Broken Social Scene have just released their first new track since 2010 as part of Arts & Crafts’ ‘Broadsheet Music: A Year in Review’ project, which is presenting music inspired by the news stories which have informed 2014.
“It is a song we as a band all felt strongly about lyrically and musically and we wanted to give it a proper unveiling when the time was right,” the band say of ‘Golden Facelift‘.
“We feel that chance is now as this year draws to a close. 2014 has not been without its beauty, but it has also been a year of incredible brutality and all of humanity has a great deal to answer for. As songwriters and creative artists we want the world to know Broken Social Scene’s aim is to be a voice that will champion underdogs and the idea of goodness on this planet upon which we all take up valuable space.”
