Following the release of their recent live collection 'What To Look For In Summer' in 2020, Belle & Sebastian have now announced their plans for their next studio album 'A Bit Of Previous', which is set to be released on the 6th May via Matador Records.


The new full-length marks their first LP since 2015's 'Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance', and is being previewed by the new lead single 'Unnecessary Drama', with a new video directed by Kasparas Vidunas and Eric J. Liddle.


Speaking about the new offering, frontman Stuart Murdoch said, “The song is about a young person experimenting in being a human again after a forced hiatus. The person is weighing up whether or not it’s worth the mess! Still, you dip your toe in and it becomes delicious, and you get too much of it. Between trouble and nothing, we still choose the trouble”.
