It’s been quite some time since we have had any new material from Belle and Sebastian. Currently, they are working on a film soundtrack, which looks like it will be the first new offering from them since The Life Pursuit was released. The film project is called God Help the Girl, and the album is currently in the mastering phase and should be completed by the end of the month.

In more pressing Belle and  Sebastian news, next week the group is set to release a compilation of their BBC radio recordings from 1996-2001 on Matador Records. The record, simply titled The BBC sessions, will feature a slew of rare recording and will be a treat for their devoted following.

Available Nov 18th.
