Belle & Sebastian announce new album 'A Bit Of Previous'

After briefly returning in 2020 to deliver their live release 'What To Look For In Summer', Belle & Sebastian have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving in the coming months.

The new full-length 'A Bit Of Previous' marks their first LP since 2015's 'Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance', is being previewed by the new lead single 'Unnecessary Drama', and is set to be released on the 6th May via Matador Records.

Speaking about the new offering, frontman Stuart Murdoch said, “The song is about a young person experimenting in being a human again after a forced hiatus. The person is weighing up whether or not it’s worth the mess! Still, you dip your toe in and it becomes delicious, and you get too much of it. Between trouble and nothing, we still choose the trouble”.
