Belle and Sebastian Release New Single via One of Their Twitter Followers

The lead single and title-track from Belle and Sebastian‘s forthcoming full-length, Write About Love, hit the internet yesterday, when the band emailed an MP3 of the track to one of their Twitter followers as part of a promotion that had been announced this past Friday. The lucky recipient, a woman named Crystal, was encouraged to do with the song whatever she pleased—to keep it to herself or share it with the world in whatever way she saw fit. Fortunately, she chose to post the song on her Tumblr, where you can still here it right now. It will be available as a free download from the band’s website for a limited time starting later today.
