Belle and Sebastian - New Album Before Auckland Lanway

Belle and Sebastian
announce new album
Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance
out Jan 16 one week prior to their
Auckland Laneway performance

Belle and Sebastian will release their ninth studio album on January 16, 2015 in New Zealand via Matador Records – their first to be released on Matador worldwide. The announcement comes as their spot on the Auckland Laneway Festival 2015 is confirmed.

Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance is the long-awaited follow-up to 2010’s Write About Love. The album was produced and mixed at Maze Studios in Atlanta by Ben H. Allen III, best known for his work with Gnarls Barkley, Animal Collective, and Raury, among others.

Additional mixing was done with longtime collaborator Tony Doogan in Glasgow, and the album was mastered by Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road Studios.

The band have shared a trailer highlighting their time in Atlanta and other little moments soundtracked by a snippet of music from Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance.

There are also several images from recording and other recent activities on their Instagram (http://instagram.com/bellesglasgow).

As a reminder, the band’s entire vinyl catalogue will be back in print on October 10, with new cover art for “Dear Catastrophe Waitress”. Details here:http://www.belleandsebastian.com/reissues/
