Belle and Sebastian have released Part 2 of the band’s new trilogy of EPs, How To Solve Our Human Problems via Matador / Remote Control.
Recently adding an Australian leg to their busy live schedule in 2018, the band will embark on a national tour throughout May playing Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Full details and ticket links can be found below.
The band concluded 2017 in festive fashion, with radio sessions for Lauren Laverne on 6 Music , Jo Whiley on Radio 2, and BBC Radio Scotland’s The Quay Sessions, where they performed a special cover of The Waitresses’ ‘Christmas Wrapping’.
Recalling their 1997 release of three consecutive EPs, How To Solve Our Human Problems, has the classic blend of joy and melancholy and idiosyncratic spirit that has always characterised Belle and Sebastian. A double album’s worth of music – richly melodic, deliciously literate, as gentle as a summer stream but as insistent as a river – How To Solve Our Human Problems is both an era of its own, and part of a long, rich history.
