New Belle & Sebastian Song Released Today

Tomorrow Glasgow's Belle & Sebastian kick off their North American tour at New York's Panorama Festival and today they've released their first new single since 2015. "We Were Beautiful" is everything that fans of the band would clamour for and something that will most definitely pique the interest of newbies. Kicking off with a muted break beat and a melodic bass line before Stuart Murdoch leads off the first verse in his world weary tone. When the chorus kicks in though is when the song really takes off. Absolutely anthemic with the bands trademark delicious boy/girl harmonies, twelve string guitar and an aching synth line. If you do get a chance to see the band live on this tour, it promises to be a very rewarding mix of classics and brand new material. It's always a gift to be treated to new Belle and Sebastian and "We Were Beautiful" is absolutely no exception.
