Belle & Sebastian to release The Life Pursuit

Belle & Sebastian have spoken to NME about their new album, which, they have revealed, is to be named ‘The Life Pursuit’. The long player, recorded at Los Angeles’ Sunset Sound studios with Beck producer Tony Hoffer, is due out on 6 Feb. Singer Stuart Murdoch explained how differently the band had approached the songwriting process on the new album: “The process of making the record has been amazing. The last record had quite a few older songs on it because we were working with Trevor (Horn) and we wanted to give them a proper go with big arrangements. This record is all new songs – 18 of them – so it’s all very current. It’s us pretty much writing in a circle and writing within the group.”
