Belle and Sebastian have a new album coming out...

Write About Love, which is Belle & Sebastian's eighth or so album, comes out in October. I've been listening to them for four or so years, and they have been good years, so I am looking forward to getting this one. I just wanted to share the "video" (some sort of promotional deal) for "I want the world to stop" and to comment on thing about the lyrics. Namely, this song's lyrical structure works in a style that I have played with, and enjoy, broken half-phrases clashed together to both seat them in, and to knock them out of, meaning.

Lyrical sample: "I want the world to stop (I want understanding) I want the world to stop. Give me the morning, give me the afternoon, the night. The night. I want to write a message to you everday at 10 o'clock in the evening. Yellow pearl my city is this is your art this is your Balzac, your Brookside, your Bach."
