Belle & Sebastian get the ‘Blues’ on new single

The band lift a second track from new album

Belle & Sebastian are to release a second single from their Top Ten album ‘The Life Pursuit’.

Following on from the Top 20 hit ‘Funny Little Frog’, ‘The Blues Are Still Blue’ is out on April 3. The CD comes backed by ‘The Life Pursuit’ and ‘Mr Richard’, both of which were performed on the band’s recent sell-out UK tour.

The 7″ has B&S‘ version of the traditional Irish anthem ‘Whiskey In The Jar’, and the DVD has the video of the single (shot recently in LA) and ‘Roy Walker(Live At The Botanics)’.

As has been previously announced on NME.COM, Belle & Sebastian play the Triptych festival at Glasgow Tramway on April 30. They will also perform at the 02 Wireless Festival in London’s Hyde Park on June 21 alongside The Strokes and Super Furry Animals.

And the band voted Scotland’s finest ever in 2005 will also play the T In The Park festival for the first time – they appear on the Main Stage on July 8.
