Belle and Sebastian - 'How To Solve Our Human Problems' EP's & Box Set, "I'll Be Your Pilot" premiere





Harkening back to their 1997 release of three consecutive EPs ('Dog On Wheels', 'Lazy Line Painter Jane', and '3.. 6.. 9 Seconds Of Light'), Belle and Sebastian will release three new EPs under the umbrella title 'How To Solve Our Human Problems', with the first EP coming out on December 8th, the second on January 19th, and the third on February 16th  (vinyl and digital only).  The EP trilogy will culminate with a compilation CD and a limited vinyl box set containing all three EPs, with the option of a box just for EP3 for those who have already purchased 1 and 2.





Belle and Sebastian has revealed a new song titled "I’ll Be Your Pilot", which can be found on EP2.  The single takes as its subject Stuart Murdoch’s young son: “Having your first kid is a huge event, so I wrapped a lot of things I felt about Denny into the song. Being a dad made me feel a little like the pilot in The Little Prince, hence all the references to the Sahara!”

Just as those three early EPs are a crucial part of the Belle and Sebastian canon, these three new releases aren't merely a detour between albums, but as definitive releases in their own right. 'How To Solve Our Human Problems' is both an era of its own, and part of a long, rich history. 'How To Solve Our Human Problems' is, if you like, Belle and Sebastian Redux.

When Belle and Sebastian felt new music percolating, they decided to break from the working methods of the recent years and instead stay at home, record the tracks as and when, often producing themselves, working with friends and collaborators to see what emerged. Working in Glasgow gave them the freedom to work without the constraints that making an album can impose: they could take their time honing and experimenting.

One thing that has defined Belle and Sebastian has been their relationship with fans, and that’s apparent in the new EPs. For the three sleeves, the group issued a call to fans to come to be photographed by Murdoch at a studio in Belsize Park in North London. Fifty were selected, and all those photographed were also recorded answering the question: “How do you solve your human problems?”

The 3x12" boxset is available with two different purchase options. You can buy the set as a subscription which will ship an EP to your door each month, starting with the first EP on December 8th, the second EP on January 19th and the third EP and box + poster on Febraury 16th.

OR you can buy the 3x12" boxset as a complete set, which will ship to arrive on February 16th, 2018.
Alternatively, you may purchase a CD compilation of the 3 EPs, which will also ship to arrive on February 16th, 2018.


The 3 EPs are also available individually, without the boxset and poster, on each of the dates listed above. You can buy EP 1 HERE, EP 2 HERE and EP 3 HERE.

Olympic_Michael_Edit_Final_Delivery0


The stars of track and field are beautiful people.




You may be familiar with a sporting event by the name of the Olympic Games, which is taking place in Rio this year. To coincide with this, Belle and Sebastian have released a song "Olympic Village, 6am" in video-only format as the track and field events commence today.

Stuart Murdoch says:

"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’."

You can listen to the track and watch the video here.

All upcoming tour dates:

Friday, August 12th - La Route du Rock Festival, France
Sunday, August 14th - Openlucht Theater, Belgium, Antwerp

Above and below respectively : from last night, Belle and Sebastian performing "Allie" and "Sukie In The Graveyard", the former culled from 'Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance', the latter from 'The Life Pursuit" and a non-broadcast web exclusive taped for Monday's "Late Night With Seth Meyers". Seth's other guests were Maya Rudolph and the guy who played king-of-the-wolves on "True Blood", which is a big step up from the time one of our bands was denied couch time in favor of "Trapper John M.D." 2nd fiddle Gregory Harrison.
