Something for All of Us... is the debut solo album by Broken Social Scene co-founder Brendan Canning. The album is the second in a series entitled Broken Social Scene Presents:, with each album in the series being a particular member's solo efforts, assisted by fellow Broken Social Scene members—the first being Kevin Drew's Spirit If....

"Hit the Wall" is the album's first single and was made available as a free download on the Arts & Crafts website on May 5, 2008. The album was released to retail on July 22, 2008.[5] Due to the leak of an unmastered version in mid-June, Canning released the album as a digital download.[6]

The album was generally warmly received. The album currently has a score of 70 out of 100 on Metacritic[7] with praise from The Boston Globe, Billboard, No Ripcord, Almost Cool, and Delusions of Adequacy (DOA). The album has also sold fairly well, reaching #17 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart.
