Unreleased Belle & Sebastian song, ‘Paper Boat’, shared online

The track was written by B&S co-founder, Stuart David.

An unreleased Belle & Sebastian track has been shared - along with old video footage of the band.

‘Paper Boat’ was written by B&S co-founder, Stuart David, now of Looper - and the footage, filmed on a trip to Aberdeenshire back in 1998 - has been compiled to a video by Looper bandmate, Karn David, who also directed B&S videos way back when.

The upload coincides with the release of Stuart David’s book, ‘In The All-Night Cafe, A Memoir of Belle & Sebastian’ on 16th April via Little Brown, and also Looper’s 5-disc box set, ‘These Things’ on 13th April via Mute - which features new album, ‘Offgrid:Offline’.
