Belle and Sebastian Return with "We Were Beautiful"

Belle and Sebastian Return with "We Were Beautiful"

Belle and Sebastian announced a North American tour way back in February, promising at the time that new music would soon be on the way. At last, we've got just that.

The Glaswegian pop heroes have unloaded the new song "We Were Beautiful," and you can have it below. It marks the first new material we've properly got from the group since 2015's Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance.

We've only just heard the synth-coated song now ourselves, but does Sturt Murdoch sounds a whole lot like, um, Momus here? We'll leave it up to you if that's a good or bad thing.

The song was produced by the band, along with help from Brian McNeil.

Belle and Sebastian are set to play Toronto on July 27, and you can see all their upcoming North American dates here.
