Broken Social Scene Expands To Horns On New Album

You can expect more horns and more Canadians on Broken Social Scene’s highly anticipated new album, which was originally dubbed “Windsurfing Nation” but will now be a self-titled affair. The set is due Oct. 4 via the group’s own Toronto-based label Arts & Crafts.

It’s the follow-up to 2002’s breakthrough “You Forgot It in People,” which has sold more than 77,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The set also won a Juno Award for best alternative album.

Despite Broken Social Scene’s success, no one is quite sure just how many people make up the group. Fellow Arts & Crafts labelmates like Apostle Of Hustle’s Andrew Whitemen, Stars members Amy Milan and Evan Cranley and songstress Leslie Feist are revolving members. The new self-titled effort also features rapper K-OS, the Weakerthans’ Jason Tate and the Dears’ Murray Lightburn.
