Broken Social Scene have a new track that was featured on their labels’ compilation Broadsheet Music: A Year In Review.
Golden Facelift was recorded during the Forgiveness Rock Record sessions but didn’t make the full length. They saved it until now, pairing it with a video that could be described as the last word on 2014.
The band commented on the track in a press release that was posted on Pitchfork:
“Golden Facelift” is a song recorded during the Forgiveness Rock Record sessions, but ultimately did not make the final cut for one reason or another. 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. 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. Broken Social Scene aims to echo the voice and concerns of the underdog while creating music that will hopefully inspire those who are doing good and useful things for this planet and humankind.
