New Album From Belle and Sebastian

The 8th album by Belle and Sebastian, Belle & Sebastian Write About Love, has not yet been given a release date.

A message from Stuart:
The new record is called Belle and Sebastian Write About Love.

While I was doing the art, I got Kim from the ace Glasgow band, Zoey Van Goey, to write this in chalk in a few secluded spots in Glasgow and I took her picture. If you haven't already, you can see her on the splash page.

What I was thinking is that it would be fun if some of you tried the same thing, and either filmed yourself doing it, or got someone to take a picture (it would be good to see you with your work!). You can then upload them to our Flickr group here for everyone to see (you will need to sign up to Flickr if not already a member and join the group).

We'll choose some of the most scenic, artistic and elaborate ones and present the best submissions with a trophy of some sort!

To sum up, I'd like to see pictures or footage of you writing either Belle and Sebastian Write About Love or Write About Love in secret or public places, in the town you live in.

Post them here and remember to use chalk or at least something non-permanent!
