Here comes a late-week surprise: Broken Social Scene have released the lead single from their upcoming new album, now titled Forgiveness Rock Record, and it’s streaming now over at Pitchfork. The song, titled “World Sick,” is a sprawling epic, which is remarkable, since it didn’t seem like this band could get any more sprawling. It’s been too long since BSS dropped gems like this (like five years!), and this one brings it all back.
Forgiveness Rock Record is due out on May 4 via Arts & Crafts.
