“I ended up writing my own record with Ohad [Benchetrit] and Charles [Spearin]… 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.
