The band get to grips with a classic chart-topper

Belle & Sebastian have covered Rod Stewart’s ‘Baby Jane’ on the B-side of their new single ’White Collar Boy’.

The track, a UK Number one in 1983 for Stewart, appears on the flipside of the 7” version of the track, which is released on June 26.

The CD single features new tracks ‘Long Black Scarf’ and ‘Heaven In The Afternoon’, while the DVD has the ‘White Collar Boy’ video and a live performance of ‘Sukie In The Graveyard’.

‘White Collar Boy’ is the third track to be taken from Belle & Sebastian’s Top Ten LP ‘The Life Pursuit’.

Belle & Sebastian make a host of summer festival appearances, including a slot at the 02 Wireless bash in London’s Hyde Park on June 21 and the Carling Weekend: Reading and Leeds festivals between August 25 and 27.
