After delighting us with their stunning LP 'A Bit Of Previous' last year, Belle And Sebastian have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving later this week.
The new full-length 'Late Developers' is being previewed by the new lead single 'I Don't Know What You See In Me', which comes accompanied by a brilliant Andrew Litten-directed video, and is set to be released this Friday 13th January via Matador.
Speaking about the new offering, the band's Stuart Murdoch said, "I was bicycling across Scotland last summer, listening to a mix of this song. It was written and produced for us by our friend Pete ‘Wuh Oh’ Ferguson. As I listened to it, I felt lucky to be the first person to get to sing this song. I let my voice swoop and soar in ways that it maybe hasn’t before. And as I continued through fields of gold and green I allowed myself to forget it was Belle And Sebastian, and pretend it was the latest hit on some random radio station. All music is escape, and perhaps we managed to escape a little further than usual with this unexpected tune. Thanks Pete!"
