Broken Social Scene return with their first new music in seven years, Released to the internet overnight, after a live performance on US television, ‘Halfway Home’ is the band’s first new music since the Forgiveness Rock Record back in 2010, and also comes hand-in-hand with a few European live dates for this coming May .

Soaring from the first kick of drums that welcomes it in to the world, the track is an expansive and radiant five-minutes, the simmering verses leaping in to life amid a surge of varied and colourful instrumentation that just might, and very well should, take your breath away. Utterly captivating throughout, and laced with that searing sense of wide-eyed jubilance that makes them such a thoroughly vital band, it’s an almighty return from the Canadian collective, and you can play it to your heart’s content below right now.

They debuted the song last night with a performance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert that featured a 13-person band which included members of usual Broken Social Scene members Metric and Stars. The new single even sounds like a reunion, so cinematic and anthemic in scope that it wouldn’t be out of place soundtracking a powerful scene in a movie or TV show, and it’s a welcome return for sure
