Belle and Sebastian have returned with a new single, “We Were Beautiful,” marking the Scottish indie veterans’ first new music since 2015’s Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance.
The new song, recorded in the band’s native Glasgow, features frontman’s Stuart Murdoch’s unmistakable vocals backed by some spacey synths, shimmering pedal steel and driving percussion, leading to a triumphant chorus. Listen below.
Belle and Sebastian North American tour stops by New York’s Panorama Festival tomorrow, July 29, and will also run through Maryland’s, Merriweather Post Pavilion, Boston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago and more before heading to the Netherlands and Japan. Select dates will be with artists like Andrew Bird, Spoon, Julien Baker and more. Full tour details can be found here.
