Belle and Sebastian Celebrate the Rio Olympics with New Song
Belle and Sebastian are no strangers to penning musical odes to athletics — as proven by the likes of "The Loneliness of a Middle Distance Runner" and "The Stars of Track and Field" — so, it only makes sense that the Scottish twee pop unit have crafted a new tune in honour of the Rio Olympics.
 
"Belle and Sebastian dig the Olympics, love the Olympic ideal, love that the world gets together for a big 'sports day' once every four years," frontman Stuart Murdoch said in a statement. "We can't be part of it, though we'd like to be. So we recorded a piece of music with Rio in mind, specifically the track and field."
