Belle and Sebastian/God Help The Girl news

A message from those lovely people at B&S HQ:

"Hi Folks,

Here's a quick note from b&s HQ to keep you up to date with the God Help The Girl releases.

Another download & 7" from the album will be released on 20th July. "Funny Little Frog" is a version of the 2006 Belle and Sebastian single, sung by Brittany Stallings and the b-side is non album track "Mary's Market". You can download both "Mary's Market" and "Funny Little Frog" for FREE from the GHTG Myspace so go have a listen today!

As you may know the album "God Help The Girl" is released on the 22nd June by Rough Trade in the UK and the following day by Matador in the USA & Canada. It features fourteen tracks including the singles "Come Monday Night" and "Funny Little Frog" and the initial CD copies in the UK will come in a lovely hardback booklet with lyrics, and an introductory story by Stuart. For all you LP lovers, a vinyl edition will be available which comes with a download code.

We will of course be stocking all formats in the b&s online shop but you will also find these at the usual retailers online and on the high street.

As well as the above, there is a God Help The Girl subscription package available now which in addition to all planned releases for the coming months, includes a 5 track 10" EP "Stills" which features non-album tracks. If this sounds like your cup of tea then visit the GHTG website.

Lastly, if you've been following the progress of the GHTG release you should check out Stuart's blog on the Guardian website which accompanies some great clips about the making of God Help The Girl by Marisa Privitera. Follow this link to THE GUARDIAN.

Thanks for your support!
