Belle and Sebastian return with new album “A Bit of Previous” out May 6th on Matador

Belle and Sebastian have announced their 9th album and first studio full-length in seven years, A Bit Of Previous, released May 6th on Matador. Listen to / watch the video for first single “Unnecessary Drama” HERE.

“The song is about a young person experimenting in being a human again after a forced hiatus”, says frontman Stuart Murdoch. “The person is weighing up whether or not it’s worth the mess! Still, you dip your toe in and it becomes delicious, and you get too much of it. Between trouble and nothing, we still choose the trouble.”
