The Scottish indie-pop legends Belle and Sebastian are just now working on the release of How to Solve Our Human Problems, a trilogy of brand new EPs. Last month they released the first installment with the second coming later this week. In the run-up to its release the group have shared “The Same Star,” the first track we’ve heard from the new EP. It’s sparkly pop feel is right in line with some of the groups greatest work. With a lead vocal from Sarah Martin the chorus is held up by a huge and triumphant horn-laced chorus and a blistering guitar solo – something that coincidentally we would never really expect from Belle and Sebastian in 1998.
Check out the track below:
The second How to Solve Our Human Problems EP is out January 19th on Matador Records, with the third arriving February 16th.
