“Olympic Village, 6AM” is a brand new instrumental track.

Stuart Murdoch says: “Belle and Sebastian dig the Olympics, love the Olympic ideal, love that the world gets together for a big ‘sports day’ once every four years. We can’t be part of it, though we’d like to be. So we recorded a piece of music with Rio in mind, specifically the Track and Field. Here it is: ‘Olympic Village, 6AM’.”

August 12th, France, La Route du Rock Festival
August 14th, Belgium, Antwerp, Openlucht Theater
August 19th, Norway, Parkenfest
