It’s been seven years since we last heard some new music from Broken Social Scene, but last night the Toronto-based musical collective took to the stage of the Ed Sullivan Theater to debut a brand new song on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”.
As reported by NME, the line-up for Thursday night’s “Late Show” performance consisted of Kevin Drew, Brendan Canning, Justin Peroff, Andrew Whiteman, Charles Spearin, Sam Goldberg, Ariel Engle, Emily Haines, Jimmy Shaw, Amy Millan, Evan Cranley, David French and Dave Hodge.
The new track — titled “Halfway Home” — will presumably be part of the band’s upcoming album, which is slated for a summer release, according to an interview with Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew conducted late last year.
“I’m looking to get back on stage with my family and connect with the people,” Drew said on “The Strombo Show”. “We have to finish it, obviously, just a small thing called finishing… I think that we’re thinking summer [release].”
Following the performance, the band dropped the studio version of “Halfway Home”, which you can check out below.
Meanwhile, you can catch “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET/PT on Global. You can also watch full episodes online.
