Feist Announces Reunion with Broken Social Scene

Canadian indie outfit Broken Social Scene has boasted a sprawling and fluid lineup since its inception in 1999.

One of its most prominent breakaways, Feist served as core member from 2002-2005. During her tenure, the indie songstress made many appearances on tour and contributed to the group’s second album Forget It In People. In 2005 she parted way with the group to pursue an international solo career, finding widespread acclaim with alt pop albums like 2007’s Let It Die.

In an announcement via her Instagram Feist announced that she was again working with the group stating:“Tomorrow I go join my broken brothers to add my ‘loverspit’ to the new #brokensocialscene album.”

It hasn’t been the first time Feist has returned to collaborate with the collective, having reappeared for various live performances and making contributions to 2010 LP Forgiveness Rock Record. While details for the upcoming untitled album remain scarce, BSS may have already revealed some new material from the album. The group debuted new song Gonna Get Better at Chicago’s Pitchfork Music Festival in July.

The announcement comes as welcome news as both Feist and Broken Social Scene have remained fairly quiet in the last half-decade. Until resurfacing in July this year Broken Social Scene had not performed live since 2011.
