Canadian collective Broken Social Scene have announced details of a bonus 'EP', as a reward for those who pre-order their new album, Forgiveness Rock Record, which comes out on May 3 in the UK via City Slang.
The EP, which is actually ten tracks long so arguably NOT an EP at all, is called Lo-Fi For The Dividing Nights and the band give the low-down on their official website:
Lo-Fi For The Dividing Nights was written during the recording of Forgiveness Rock Record in Chicago. During downtime band members would head into Soma's second smaller studio to test out new ideas and overdubs while John McEntire worked in the main room. Here they created lovely little soundscapes, one of which ended up being the closing song on Forgiveness Rock Record, ‘Me & My Hand’, and the rest became the beginnings of Lo-Fi For The Dividing Nights.
It contains the following tracks:
- New Instructions
- Sudden Foot Loss
- Shabba Lights
- Song for Dee
- Eling's Haus
- Professor Sambo
- Never Felt Alive
- Paperweight Room
- Turbo Mouse
- Far Out
As the band write, a digital download of the EP will be included free for all pre-orders of Forgiveness Rock Record which are purchased before May 4. A PI number will be sent to all customers who do this to download the EP on May 3. As some people point out, however it's not entirely sure what process you'll have to go to in the UK to get the EP.
