Feist was a key member of the band from 2002 – 2005, contributing to their debut album ‘Feel Good Lost’ and going on tour with them.
Taking to Instagram to share the news, Leslie Feist shared a picture of herself and the band in 2004, with the caption: “Tomorrow I go join my broken brothers to add my ‘loverspit’ to the new #brokensocialscene album. Reunion Union.”
Broken Social Scene confirmed in July that work had begun on a new album, their follow-up to 2010’s ‘Forgiveness Rock Record’.
In 2014, the band released ‘Golden Facelift’ – a song based around the topic of “reclamation and human accountability” and was originally recorded the band’s 2010 album.
“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. “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.”
