2015 is finally here and Broken Social Scene are back to help you ring in the New Year. They released “Golden Facelift,” a track originally recorded for 2010’s Forgiveness Rock Record, a few weeks ago on a compilation, but now seems like the perfect time to take its sentiments heart. Here’s what the band had to say about the song:
“‘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.”
Happy New Year!
