Belle & Sebastian has begun work on their new studio album - check out some shots below.
Belle & Sebastian like to tackle things at their own speed. It's been three years since the band's last studio album - three years which has seen them tour the world and release the recent singles compilation 'The Third Eye Centre'.
Recently emerging from hibernation, Belle & Sebastian completed a handful of live dates. It seems that this has re-energised the seminal collective, who have now went back into the studio.
Posting a short note on Twitter, the group said: "The countdown has begun to starting work on our new lp - check it out on our instagram".
