Watch: Belle and Sebastian - Unnecessary Drama

Living indie legends announce tenth studio album, first in seven years

Showing no signs of age wearying them are Scottish superstars Belle and Sebastian, who today announce forthcoming tenth studio album A Bit of Previous with new single, Unnecessary Drama.

A frantic, rollicking indie jaunt, this is B&S at their catchiest finest with catchy hooks and memorable vocal melodies in abundance. “The song is about a young person experimenting in being a human again after a forced hiatus”, says frontman Stuart Murdoch. “The person is weighing up whether or not it’s worth the mess! Still, you dip your toe in and it becomes delicious, and you get too much of it. Between trouble and nothing, we still choose the trouble."

Paired with a fun music video that visually tells the story of what Murdoch describes, give it a watch now:
