‘Golden Facelift’ is said to focus on the topic of “reclamation and human accountability” and was originally recorded for Broken Social Scene’s 2010 album “Forgiveness Rock Record”.
“It is a song we as a band all felt strongly about lyrically and musically and we wanted to give it a proper unveiling when the time was right,” the band said upon the song’s original release last month.
“We feel that chance is now as this year draws to a close. 2014 has not been without its beauty, but it has also been a year of incredible brutality and all of humanity has a great deal to answer for. As songwriters and creative artists we want the world to know Broken Social Scene’s aim is to be a voice that will champion underdogs and the idea of goodness on this planet upon which we all take up valuable space.”
