Belle and Sebastian Return With ‘Unnessary Drama’ Album -Out May 6th Via Matador

Belle and Sebastian have announced their 9th album and first studio full-length in seven years, A Bit Of Previous, released May 6th on Matador. Watch the video for the first single “Unnecessary Drama” below.

“The song is about a young person experimenting in being a human again after a forced hiatus”, says frontman Stuart Murdoch. “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.”
