Belle and Sebastian Share Footage of 1998 Vacation in ‘Paper Boat’ Video
The single preempts an upcoming memoir about the band's early days
In advance of an upcoming memoir about Belle and Sebastian’s early days written by former member Stuart David (called In the All-Night Café), they’ve shared an unreleased track and music video called “Paper Boat.” It features unreleased footage of Stuart Murdoch and Isobel Campbell during a 1998 Scottish vacation, and what it doesn’t offer in the field of innovation, it delivers in nostalgia and charming, home-grown sentimentalism.
Belle and Sebastian released their most recent album, the disc0-flecked Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance, in January. Pick up the new memoir on May 1 and watch “Paper Boat” above.
