BELLE & SEBASTIAN ‘Write About Love’ – Out Now!
Four and a half years after the release of 'The Life Pursuit', Belle And Sebastian return with their eighth studio album. Unlike its predecessors, it is an album which has come together in a relatively short period of time. After reconvening in February 2010, a period of writing and pre-production in Glasgow was followed by a trip to Los Angeles for recording with Tony Hoffer [who also produced 'The Life Pursuit'] at the renowned Sound Factory Studio B. As ever, the record draws the band's internal songwriting strengths, but this time includes some guest performances. Stuart Murdoch wrote the majority of the songs on the album, while Sarah Martin takes lead vocals on her two contributions, 'I Didn't See It Coming' and 'I Can See Your Future' and Stevie Jackson on his ['I'm Not Living In The Real World']. In addition, Norah Jones contributes lead vocals to 'Little Lou, Ugly Jack, Prophet John' (which also appears on her forthcoming album of duets and collaborations called 'Featuring') and actress Carey Mulligan sings on the single 'Write About Love'. Strings were added by LA residents The Section Quartet. bonus tracks expected!
