Hug of Thunder

Broken Social Scene’s highly-anticipated new album Hug of Thunder, their first since 2010’s Forgiveness Rock Record, is out Friday (7/7) via City Slang/Arts & Crafts. You’ve already heard “Stay Happy,” “Skyline,” title track “Hug of Thunder,” and “Halfway Home” (the last two both featuring Feist), and now you can stream the whole album early, via NPR.

Hug of Thunder features contributions from the aforementioned Feist, as well as Amy Millan and Evan Cranley of Stars, Emily Haines and James Shaw of Metric, and the rest of BSS’s original 15 members. (Stars and Emily Haines have recently released new music of their own, too, and Feist’s great LP Pleasure came out earlier this year) It also includes new additions like Ariel Engle, who sings lead vocals on “Stay Happy” and plays in AroarA with BSS member Andrew Whiteman.

Broken Social Scene are on tour throughout the summer and fall, including The Meadows, Osheaga, and a few dates opening for Arcade Fire. See all of BSS’s upcoming tour dates below.
