Belle and Sebastian Write about Love
Releasing: 12 October
It was only a few months ago that Belle and Sebastian were recording a new album in Los Angeles and Tweeting about Trader Joes indulgences. Stuart Murdoch and co. must’ve found a lot of inspiration in those knock-off gourmet treats, since they’ve just announced that their first full-length in four years, Belle and Sebastian Write about Love, is slated for release on October 12 via Matador. Posting two different duotone album covers and a slick video that gives only a brief glimpse of a new song, “I Want the World to Stop”, the Belles, despite the layoff, remain ever the teases.
