Scottish indie band Belle and Sebastian announced over the weekend that their new, intriguingly titled album, Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance, will be released early next year. The album arrives on Jan. 20, 2015 in North America.
You can hear a sampling of one of the tracks off the album in a video the band released, which shows the members in Atlanta where the album was produced and mixed by Ben H. Allen III, who has worked with the likes of Gnarls Barkley. In the video, the band teases “a different aesthetic” thanks to working with a hip hop producer and “some southern elements.”
The band is playing some shows in the U.S. in October and has a Radio City concert scheduled for June 2015.
