Belle & Sebastian have composed the soundtrack for new film Days of the Bagnold Summer. The film, which is based on the 2012 graphic novel by Joff Winterhart and directed by Simon Bird (The Inbetweeners), is not out till 2020 but the soundtrack is out September 13 via Matador. It includes 11 new Belle and Sebastian songs, as well as re-recorded versions of “Get Me Away From Here I'm Dying” (from If You’re Feeling Sinister) and “I Know Where The Summer Goes” (from This Is Just a Modern Rock Song EP). “Everything we do that becomes an album is a big deal for us,” says Murdoch. “We’re quietly pleased with how the collaboration went, but the truth is that you don’t know what’s going to happen when it goes out into the world, and people hear it," adding, "The whole thing with music is to make a good moment better. Deeper, more thrilling, more heartfelt.” You can check out the video for "Sister Buddha" below.

If you're unfamiliar with Days of the Bagnold Summer, it's a coming-of-age story "of a heavy-metal-loving teenager’s holiday plans falling through at the last minute, leading to him having to spend the summer with the person who annoys him most in the world: his mum" and stars Monica Dolan, Earl Cave, Rob Brydon, Alice Lowe, Tamsin Greig, and Elliot Speller-Gillott.

Belle & Sebastian will start their North American tour next week which includes a NYC show at Brooklyn Steel on July 10 with Barrie (tickets). They'll also be at Pitchfork fest where they'll play If You're Feeling Sinister in full. All dates are listed below.
