Currently-on-hiatus indie legends Broken Social Scene have shared a previously unheard number entitled “Golden Facelift” as part of a song series conducted by the Canadian Opera Company, Arts & Crafts, and The Globe & Mail. ”Golden Facelift” is a leftover outtake from the recording sessions surrounding Broken Social Scene’s acclaimed 2010 LP, Forgiveness Rock Record, which served as the band’s final full-length studio album before their current break. The Canadian collective’s selection for the Broadsheet Music: A Year in Review series also came with a statement explaining the song, which you can read below. You can listen to “Golden Facelift” above.

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. 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.
