Broken Social Scene have just shared "Stay Happy" from their terrific new album Hug of Thunder. This song features vocals from a new addition to the BSS family, Ariel Engle (who also plays in AroarA with Andrew Whiteman), and is typically anthemic but also peppered with weird blasts of horn, not to mention some groovy flute action. You can listen to that below.

The band will be on tour later this year, including NYC"s The Meadows fest in September, and they've just expanded the tour to include West Coast dates with the Belle Game. Non-festival Midwest and East Coast shows are with Frightened Rabbit, and they've got a few Canadian dates with Arcade Fire. All dates are listed below.
