Broken Social Scene released a new album, Hug of Thunder, back in July via Arts & Crafts. Now they have done a session for Spotify where they performed the album’s “Skyline,” but also covered Tom Waits’ “I Don’t Want to Grow Up.” Listen below.

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” and “Stay Happy.” Then they shared a bonkers Kevin Drew-directed video for “Vanity Pail Kids,” which starred a toilet who’s trying to break into the music industry. Then there was a video for “Skyline” featuring the 1980s rock band Foreigner.

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.
