Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew set to release new solo LP

-

Broken Social Scene founding member, Kevin Drew has revealed he’s working on a new solo record.

Following on from his former band’s announcement earlier this week that they’ll reunite for one show later this year, Drew has spoken to Pitchfork about his upcoming project.

“I ended up writing my own record with Ohad  and Charles … It sounds like me: I’m singing about bad business transactions, bodily fluids, and courage. I am 36 years old, I can’t change. I have tried, trust me, but I can’t. It’s nice to get over yourself and just do it.”

The singer also compared it to his first lone effort, 2007′s Spirit If…:

“With Spirit If… I was still experimenting with songwriting, but with this album I wanted to say: ‘This is what I sound like. This is what I do.’ “

Drew also looks set to put out a collaborative album with veteran songwriter Andy Kim later this year as well.

Broken Social Scene’s last album was Forgiveness Rock Record, released back in 2010.
