    Broken Social Scene's Brendan Canning will release his second solo album, You Gots 2 Chill, on October 1, 2013 via SQE and his own Draper Street Records.

    Listen to the first track "Plugged In" by visiting brendancanning.com.

    Even with Broken Social Scene on indefinite hiatus, it's been an especially busy year for Brendan Canning: he recently revived his long-dormant, pre-BSS indie-pop project Cookie Duster; he composed the soundtrack to Paul Schrader's Lindsay Lohan spectacle, The Canyons (written by Bret Easton Ellis); and he's currently working on an ambitious interactive video-game/film project based on a premise that involves director David Cronenberg selling his intellectual property to a biotech lab.

    Amidst all this activity, he still found time to write and record You Gots 2 Chill, providing the clearest, most personal portrait to date of an artist who's spent much of his two-decade career making other people sound better. Back in the '60s, some acoustic-guitar slinging boho from Minnesota extolled the virtues of bringing it all back home—with You Gots 2 Chill, Brendan Canning updates that maxim to 21st-century standards.

    Yes, we mean Bob Dylan.



    Will you Chill with Brendan Canning in October?
