Belle and Sebastian have shared a brand new song, “We Were Beautiful.” Right now it’s just a standalone single, there’s no word if the song is from an upcoming album or EP. The band just embarked on a North American tour, so it could be in honor of that. The song 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. Check it out below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

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 Were Beautiful” seems to be culled from this project.
