Belle & Sebastian share alternative Olympic theme, ‘Olympic Village, 6am’

The track’s release coincides with the track and field competition starting.

To coincide with the start of the track and field competitions at this year’s Rio Olympics, indie veterans Belle & Sebastian have shared their own ‘alternative’ Olympic theme, ‘Olympic Village, 6am’.

Main man Stuart Murdoch says ”Belle and Sebastian dig the Olympics, love the Olympic ideal, love that the world gets together for a big ‘sports day’ once every four years. We can’t be part of it, though we’d like to be. So we recorded a piece of music with Rio in mind, specifically the Track and Field. Here it is: ‘Olympic Village, 6AM’.”

Belle & Sebastian headline Green Man festival later this month.
