Broken Social Scene Announce Rarities Compilation, Shares New Single

Toronto indie rock collective Broken Social Scene is pulling from their 20-year long history together to compile their first rarities compilation, Old Dead Young: B-Sides & Rarities out Jan. 14, 2022 via Arts & Crafts. The collection of tracks will include B-sides and outtakes too, from past compilations, 7-inches, soundtracks and more.

The first single of the album, “This House Is On Fire,” has just been released following the announcement. The single is taken from the group’s 2009 Forgiveness Rock Record recording sessions. The track is glimmering and lush, with treacherous lyrics of losing everything in a fire.
