BELLE And Sebastian will play the Grand Opera House, York, on March 20 as the only Yorkshire show of their 16-date British and Irish tour.

Unless you know otherwise, this will be the first time Stuart Murdoch's Glaswegian band have performed in York in their 19-year history of eight studio albums, one film soundtracks, three compilations, one BBC sessions collection and two live albums.

In July, the Scots released their first new studio material since their January 2015 album Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance in the form of the stand-alone single We Were Beautiful. Penned in Summer 2016 and recorded in Glasgow with producer Brian McNeill, this artful meditation on quotidian moments is accompanied by a video directed by Blair Young, from The Forest Of Black.

Shot in their home city, it presents a cinematic slice of life - and all of the pain, joy, confusion and love that comes with it -as Glasgow wakes up over a Saturday morning.

This year, Belle And Sebastian have undertaken a North American tour that took in the Panorama and Osheaga Festivals, appearances at the  Hollywood Bowl and Merriweather Post Pavilion, and international headlines after leaving their drummer at a Walmart in North Dakota.

Keep an eye out for news regarding forthcoming new music soon, ahead of Belle And Sebastian's travels early next year that will take them first to mainland Europe for shows in Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Italy, Germany the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden and Norway. No Brexit for Murdoch and co!
