Stuart Murdoch / God Help the Girl - "Baby You're Blind" (new single / video)

Remember Stuart Murdoch’s God Help the Girl project, which is basically the Belle and Sebastian frontman’s attempt to write soundtrack for a film that doesn’t yet exist? While the movie has yet to go into production (though it’s slated to in 2011 according to the God Help the Girl website), Murdoch has released a video for a new track, “Baby You’re Blind”. Adding Linnea Jönsson of Swedish band Those Dancing Days to the would-be soundtrack’s revolving cast of singers, the offering has an early ‘90s feel to it, between its lite synth-pop sound and just in the way the video looks. Better yet for B&S fans who’ve been waiting patiently for a follow-up to 2006’s The Life Pursuit, the band is apparently holed up in a Los Angeles studio and enjoying their proximity to Trader Joe’s while working on a new record, if their Twitter feed is to be believed.
