Belle & Sebastian "This Letter"

Belle & Sebastian have shared “This Letter”, the track, is the second single lifted from their soundtrack for Days of the Bagnold Summer, available September 13th via Matador Records. Days of the Bagnold Summer the directorial debut of Simon Bird (The Inbetweeners, Friday Night Dinner). The soundtrack features eleven brand new Belle and Sebastian songs, as well as re recorded versions of classics ‘Get Me Away From Here I’m Dying’, originally appearing on 1996’s If You’re Feeling Sinister, and ‘I Know Where The Summer Goes’, from 1998’s This Is Just a Modern Rock Song EP.

Belle & Sebastian recently currated The Boaty Weekender, a four-day music festival and Mediterranean cruise headlined and curated by the band, where they were joined by fellow artists Mogwai, Yo La Tengo, Camera Obscura, Teenage Fanclub, Buzzcocks, Nilufer Yanya, Japanese Breakfast and Hinds, and more.

Days Of The Bagnold Summer features BAFTA-winning actress Monica Dolan (Eye in the Sky, The Falling, Pride), Earl Cave (The End of the F***ing World), Rob Brydon (The Trip, A Cock and Bull Story), BIFA-Award-winning actress, writer and director Alice Lowe (Prevenge, Adult Life Skills, Sightseers), Olivier-Award-winner actress Tamsin Greig (Second Best Marigold Hotel, Tamara Drewe) and Elliot Speller-Gillot (Uncle). It’s a tender, touching and acutely observed coming-of-age story, which tells of a heavy-metal-loving teenager’s holiday plans falling through at the last minute, leading to him having to spend the summer with the person who annoys him most in the world: his mum. The film is set for release in 2020, watch a preview clip HERE .
