Broken Social Scene are releasing a new album, Hug of Thunder, on July 7 via Arts & Crafts. Now they have shared another song from it, "Stay Happy," which is a fun and peppy number that opens with a horn section and seems to later feature some flute, as well as more horns. Listen to it below, followed by the band's upcoming tour dates (including some newly announced West Coast dates in October). Last week they also stopped by the Los Angeles public radio station KCRW to perform the song and below you can also watch video of that (and of the other two songs they performed, "Halfway Home" and "Hug of Thunder").

Broken Social Scene premiered a new song, "Halfway Home," in March and the next day the band stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform the new single. Then they shared the album's title track, "Hug of Thunder," which features vocals from Feist, along with "Skyline." The album also features longtime Broken Social Scene collaborators/members Metric's Emily Haines and James Shaw and and Stars' Amy Milan and Evan Cranley. The full lineup for the new album is as follows: Kevin Drew, John Crossingham, Brendan Canning, Sam Goldberg, Charles Spearin, Ariel Engle, Justin Peroff, Leslie Feist, Andrew Whiteman, Emily Haines, Evan Cranley, Amy Millan, Jimmy Shaw, Lisa Lobsinger, David French, Ohad Benchetrit, and Jason Collett.
