“Broken” by Patrick Watson

Montreal singer-songwriter Patrick Wilson has released a new single, “Broken,” via Domino. He described it in a press statement: “This is a song I just felt like sharing before the next record. Dedicated to the storms we went through.”

Wait — what’s that? The next record? Unfortunately it’s a bit of a tease. I scoured the statement and there’s no other mention of what would be Wilson’s first new album since 2015’s acclaimed Love Songs for Robots. I’ll let you know if I hear anything. In the meantime, check out “Broken” (our Song of the Day) and its Pedro Pires-directed video below.

Watson composes, performs and records with his full band of nearly a decade, in which he’s joined by Joe Grass (guitar), Robbie Kuster (drums/percussion) and Mishka Stein (bass).
