Belle and Sebastian have shared a brand new Olympics-themed song, “Olympic Village, 6am,” via its music video. The band are clear fans of track and field events (one of their most iconic songs is “The Stars of Track and Field” after all). The song is an instrumental and the video is cut to BBC archival footage of Olympic track and field events. Watch below.

Frontman Stuart Murdoch has this to say about the video in a press release: “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. 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. Here it is: ‘Olympic Village, 6AM.’”

The Scottish band’s most recent album, Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance, was released last year on Matador.
