Single from Stuart Murdoch's new project

The first single by God Help The Girl - the new project from Belle and Sebastian’s Stuart Murdoch - is released this week.

‘Come Monday Night’ is from the self titled album, which is released by Rough Trade on 22nd June, and is backed with a non-album track, ‘Howard Jones Is My Mozart.’

The single is available only as a limited edition 7” and download. The 7” is available from bigger branches of HMV, selected independents including Rough Trade and Sister Ray in London; Action Records in Preston, One Up Records in Aberdeen, Fopp and Rhythmic in Edinburgh, Monorail in Glasgow. It is also available online from www.belleandsebastianshop.com. The two tracks on the single will be available from iTunes from 18th May.

For those who cannot wait for the release of the album, a stream of it is available to those who subscribe to the ‘God Help The Girl’ subscription - which also includes all the planned releases for the next few months, and lots more besides.

This includes the two 7” singles (‘Come Monday Night’ and it’s successor, ‘Funny Little Frog/ Baby You’re Blind’), the deluxe version of the album (complete with book like packaging) and a five track 10 inch EP, ‘Stills,’ which features non-album tracks, ‘I’m In Love With the City,’ ‘He’s a Loving Kind of Boy,’ ‘Stills,’ ‘Baby’s Just Waiting’ and ‘The Psychiatrist Is In.’ In addition, subscribers will receive digital content, including videos for the two singles and documentary footage on the making of the album from Marisa Privitera’s ‘Girl Singer Needed.’

The subscription, which is available for both CD and vinyl buyers, is available from the God Help The Girl website.

“So we’re doing this subscription thing just now. I’m not sure how I feel about it, but the thing is, you don’t have to do it. If you want the record, you can buy the record. I suppose it’s a bit like a ‘fan club’ thing, like you would have got in the 70s or 80s. Join the Dennis The Menace fanclub, get a certificate and a furry badge of Gnasher. Join the Starsky and Hutch fanclub, get a Starsky plastic wallet and a Hutch cookery booklet. In case you’re wondering about the Stills EP, whether it’s 5 duffers, it just happens to be the tracks that Catherine and Celia and Alex sang that were less relevant to the film project, so I put them on a separate release. I wanted the LP to follow the curve of the proposed movie…” Stuart Murdoch
