The album will be released on the 22nd June (23rd US) preceded by the single ‘Come Monday Night’ on the 11th May.

« God Help The Girl is a story set to music, which Stuart Murdoch has been working on intermittently for the last five years, its origin in some songs that were written while Belle and Sebastian were touring in 2004. Stuart explains:

« I was out for a run and I got this tune in my head and it occurred to me that it wasn’t a Belle & Sebastian song. I could hear female voices and strings, I could hear the whole thing, but I just couldn’t envisage myself singing it with the group.”  »
