Belle and Sebastian have shared ‘Young and Stupid’, the second single from their forthcoming LP A Bit of Previous. The track follows lead cut ‘Unnecessary Drama’. Check out a lyric video for it below.
The release of ‘Young and Stupid’ is accompanied by a quote from actor Jon Hamm. “In 2015 at Bonnaroo, Belle and Sebastian invited Zach Galifianakis and me up to the stage during their set to toss gummy bears in each other’s mouths,” he said. “Then Stuart [Murdoch] got into the fun and demanded a catch as well. It was dramatic, stupid, and done with style and grace. I know I can speak for Zach when I say ‘I want to thank them for their inclusion of us into their show.’ I know the audience was simply confused, but we were absolutely delighted. Please enjoy this new album with a gummy bear of your choice, and think fondly of all of us.”
A Bit of Previous, the band’s first album since 2015’s Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance, is out May 6 on Matador. Belle and Sebastian recently released ‘If They’re Shooting At You’ in support of those affected by the conflict in Ukraine.
