Belle and Sebastian To Reissue Most of Their Discography on Vinyl
As Belle and Sebastian look forward to releasing their upcoming ninth full-length, they're also looking to the past, too.
The band revealed they'll reissue all eight of their studio albums along with two compilations on vinyl this fall as part of their just announced series, 'It Could Have Been a Brilliant Career,' named for the opening track of 1998's 'The Boy with the Arab Strap.' The only releases that won't be reissued are the 2005 live album, 'If You're Feeling Sinister: Live at the Barbican' and the band's soundtrack to Todd Solondz's 2011 film, 'Storytelling.' The rest of the band's catalog had been entirely out of print and will only be pressed again for a limited time.
The reissues will include:
- 'Tigermilk' (1996)
- 'If You're Feeling Sinister' (1996)
- 'The Boy With the Arab Strap' (1998)
- 'Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like a Peasant' (2000)
- 'Dear Catastrophe Waitress' (2003)
- 'Push Barman to Open Old Wounds' (2005)
- 'The Life Pursuit' (2006)
- 'The BBC Sessions' (2008)
- 'Write About Love' (2010)
- 'The Third Eye Centre' (2013)
The series will be available Oct. 7 via Matador. Meanwhile, the band also shared a short video from the studio as they work on their currently untitled album expected to drop next year. Watch it below.
