Belle and Sebastian shared a brand new song, "We Are Beautiful," back in July. Now the song has a video. Blair Young from The Forest of Black directed the video, which was shot in the band's native Glasgow, Scotland, and features the city waking up on a Saturday morning. There's also footage of the band performing the song. The band has also announced some new European tour dates for early 2018. Check out the video and dates below.

Right now it's just a standalone single, there's no word if the song is from an upcoming album or EP. Although a press release points out: "While we can't yet say what these Euro dates will be supporting, we suggest keeping an eye out in early October for more Belle and Sebastian news regarding forthcoming new music!"

"We Are Beautiful" starts almost like a mild drum 'n' bass song before turning into a more recognizable horn-inflected Belle and Sebastian song. Brian McNeil produced the song with the band.

The band's last album was 2015's Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance. Last year the band announced that they were working on new music that they planned to release as a series of vinyl EPs and frontman Stuart Murdoch posted a casting call looking for models to appear on the covers of the EPs. They weren't necessarily looking for professional models, but rather regular people who are fans of the band. The cover art for "We Are Beautiful" seems to be culled from this project.
