Belle & Sebastian have announced that they will release new album ‘Late Developers’ this Friday – a swift follow-up to their last LP, ‘A Bit Of Previous’, which came out in May.

Arriving ahead of the album release is new single ‘I Don’t Know What You See In Me’, co-written with producer Wuh Oh, of which frontman Stuart Murdoch says: “I was bicycling across Scotland last summer, listening to a mix of this song. It was written and produced for us by our friend Pete ‘Wuh Oh’ Ferguson. As I listened to it, I felt lucky to be the first person to get to sing this song”.

“I let my voice swoop and soar in ways that it maybe hasn’t before”, he continues. “And as I continued through fields of gold and green I allowed myself to forget it was Belle & Sebastian, and pretend it was the latest hit on some random radio station. All music is escape, and perhaps we managed to escape a little further than usual with this unexpected tune. Thanks Pete!”
