Praise be to Arts & Crafts for once again bringing onto the world the divine sounds of the one and only (yet ever-evolving) Broken Social Scene. On October 4 the do-it-all Canadian indie label will release the follow-up to BSS's sophomore album, You Forgot It In People. The self-titled new release features 14 tracks of what's sure to be pure sonic bliss by the core BSS collective network and other guests - including members of Stars, Apostle of Hustle, Metric, Feist, Do Make Say Think, Raising the Fawn, and The Dears, as well as k-os, Jason Tate, and Julie Penner.
The first pressing of the record will come with a limited edition, seven track EP called EP To Be You And Me. Both the album and EP will be available on CD, 2xLP (180 gram) and digital download.
If two months of waiting for the new music is just too much to bare, fear not! Arts & Crafts has launched a brand new digital download site where you can get a free promo download of the song "7/4 (Shorline)". If you've seen them live in the last year, chances are they've played this song and the studio version is, well... just as good I remember it.
And now, ladies and gentleman... we wait.
