Broken Social Scene Renames New Album

Published: 2005-08-10
Canada's favourite music collective, Broken Social Scene, has one of the most anticipated albums of the year on tap, but they're slapping a new label on it. Originally titling it Windsurfing Nation, the Scene has opted to go for a lower-key approach, renaming the album after themselves.

Broken Social Scene is the follow-up to 2002's wildly successful You Forgot It in People, which helped draw the world's ears to Canadian music. The Toronto band recently chatted with Billboard, letting even more details about the upcoming release drop.

The new album comprises 15 new tracks and a watery theme flowing throughout. With the record hitting shelves on October 4th, BSS will play a few select dates in eastern North America, possibly blossoming into a full-fledged tour in October.

Featuring not only the enormous Broken Social Scene crew, the self-titled effort also includes guest spots by some other lovely Canadians, including the Weakerthans' Jason Tate, k-os, and the Dears' Murray Lightburn. The track list of Broken Social Scene according to Billboard, runs as follows:

"Our Faces Split the Coast in Half"
"Ibi Dreams of Pavement (A Better Half)"
"7/4 (Shoreline)"
"Finish Your Collapse and Stay for Breakfast"
"Major Label Debut"
"Fire Eye'd Boy"
"Windsurfing Nation"
"Handjobs for the Holidays"
"Tremolola Debut"
'It's All Gonna Break"
