Broken Social Scene have released their first new song in seven years. Entitled “Halfway Home”, the new song follows the band’s critically acclaimed 2010 album Forgiveness Rock Record and is a welcome return from the Canadian collective.

Broken Social Scene performed “Halfway Home” live for the first time on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. The performance included band members Kevin Drew, Brendan Canning, Justin Peroff, Andrew Whiteman, Charles Spearin, Sam Goldberg, Ariel Engel, Metric’s Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw, Stars’ Amy Millan and Evan Cranley, David French, and Dave Hodge.

Broken Social Scene is an alternative rock group founded by Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning that includes members of Metric, Stars, Do Make Say Think, as well as Grammy-nominated Feist. They are one of the most enduring and influential bands to come out of the early-aughts, the band's debut You Forgot It In People largely defined the “indie rock” era and paved the way for Canadian acts like Arcade Fire and Wolf Parade to break out. The new single “Halfway Home” marks the band's first new release in seven years and will feature appearances by all original members including Leslie Feist, Metric's' Emily Haines and James Shaw, and Stars' Evan Cranley and Amy Millan. Produced by Grammy Award-winner Joe Chiccarelli (White Stripes, Spoon, The Strokes) and mixed by Grammy Award-winner Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, Lucius), the forthcoming album is scheduled for release in 2017.
