Published Jan 11, 2008The "BSS Presents" series is set to expand in late May/early June (the previously confirmed May 27 release date has now been unconfirmed) with the release of the Brendan Canning edition, which still lacks a full title.
Details are still slim on who from the BSS universe will be involved, or if there'll be any guest performances as surprising and nostalgically appropriate as Tom Cochrane's inclusion on "Lucky Ones" from Drew's Spirit If... but what we do know is that international readers have a better chance of getting a live preview of some of the album's tracks.
Broken Social Scene, the full band, or some incarnation of it, while not doing a presentation of anything specific this outing, will likely perform songs from the upcoming disc during a tour touching down in New Zealand, Australia, Japan and Singapore through February and March.
