Canadian indie rock collective Broken Social Scene stepped back into the spotlight Thursday night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, debuting the group's first new song in seven years.
It was a crowded stage as both new and founding members of the group, which has always had a large and fluid active membership, performed Halfway Home. The track is from its upcoming new LP — the group's first new release since 2010.
Rolling Stone called Halfway Home "vintage Broken Social Scene, filled with overlapping vocals, messy guitars, brass section breaks and a cathartic chorus."
The performers on hand included founding members Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning; Metric's Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw as well as Amy Millan of Stars.
Fellow member Feist wasn't present, but will be part of the new Broken Social Scene new album, in addition to releasing her own new solo album Pleasure later this year — her first since 2011's Metals.
