Belle & Sebastian’s New Album Gets a Name and Some Artwork

In a message on the official Belle and Sebastian website, Stuart Murdoch wrote: “The new record is called Belle and Sebastian Write About Love.”

The album artwork (seen to the left) is fairly apropos for B&S’s back catalog, which tend to feature monochromatic, retro photos of girls doing twee things.  This one has her looking very mod.  Perhaps the sound direction for the album, which doesn’t have a release date or track listing yet.

According to P4k: “In an effort to promote the record in a fun, DIY style, Murdoch is urging fans to take pictures or video of themselves writing “Belle and Sebastian Write About Love” or just “Write About Love” around their own city or town. He set up a Flickr group and everything. And, because he’s Stuart Murdoch, he added, “remember to use chalk or at least something non-permanent!” No B&S graffiti bombing plz.”
