Watch the Fan-Made Video for Broken Social Scene’s ‘Golden Facelift’
Broken Social Scene have been on a break since 2011, but the Canadian collective contributed a previously unreleased song on Arts & Crafts’ 2014 compilation, ‘Broadsheet Music: A Year in Review,' released earlier this month.
Now the defunct band have debuted a fan-made video for ‘Golden Facelift,’ which you can watch above. The clip -- which serves as a recap of 2014 -- mirrors the song’s sentiments, depicting everything from the silly to the ludicrous to the tragic.
Although 'Golden Facelift' was actually recorded a couple years back during the sessions for their last album, 2010’s ‘Forgiveness Rock Record.'
Broken Social Scene offered some comments in a press release:
'Golden Facelift’ is a song recorded during the ‘Forgiveness Rock Record’ sessions, but ultimately did not make the final cut for one reason or another. 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. We feel that chance is now as this year draws to a close. 2014 has not been without its beauty, but it also has been a year of incredible brutality and all of humanity has a great deal to answer for. Broken Social Scene aims to echo the voice and concerns of the underdog while creating music that will hopefully inspire those who are doing good and useful things for this planet and humankind.”
