Jason Collett

When most artists release a Best Of collection, they usually throw in a new song. Occasional Broken Social Scene cohort Jason Collett has taken this a step further by packaging a retrospective (Essential Cuts) with a brand new album, the previously mentioned Reckon which came out a couple weeks ago via Arts & Crafts. Both show off Collett's well-honed songwriting chops and you can stream both in full below.

Jason is currently on tour and will be in NYC on Wednesday (10/10) to play Joe's Pub. Tickets are still availaiable, but if you'd like to go for free we're giving a pair away. Details on how to enter are below, along with the album streams and all remaining tour dates.
